This pineapple gojju could be something that my rice loving self wants in the month of July. Because Monsoon season and my vacation both happen at the same time. When it’s raining outside, me sitting at the balcony of my mother’s house inhale the aroma of Matta rice cooking on the traditional mud stove. However advanced we are in technology, cooking food on traditional stove adds deliciousness. It’s heavenly my friends, heavenly delicious. You can bet on this. So there is no surprise that I turn to be a rice lover at my mother’s place.
Hot steaming rice is obviously a major portion of my platter along with yummy, scrumptious curries, chutney, stir fries and what not! It’s a food heaven for me. Pineapple gojju or menaskai, an authentic curry from Udupi goes perfectly well with rice. Trust me a big vessel full of menaskai gets cleared off in no time.
Pineapple is one such fruit that has both sweet and tang taste, and is ideal for making gojju. The bites of fruit cook too early and all you have to make is a masala from scratch. Black sesame seeds is one spice that is mandatory to bring authentic taste to pineapple menaskai. Along with it, few lentils and fenugreek go into it. Perfectly roasted spices along with coconut is what makes pineapple gojju a palate tickling curry.
If you remember bitter gourd gojju that we did it together last November? This one is also in similar line guys. Check it out.
