Pineapple Raita

We had chicken briyani the other night and it was so spicy. If the food is so spicy for me, then it would be way too spicy for hubby.  So before the dish is served, I decided to make some simple raita at the eleventh hour. :)) Well, raita is perfect and refreshing Indian condiment for any hot and spicy dishes. There are different types but I chose pineapple. Fresh pineapple taste terrific but I had some canned ones in hand. So here is my pineapple raita.. :))

Pineapple Raita
1 cup pineapple chunks
2 cups plain yogurt
1-2 tsp sugar (or you can use the 1 tsp of the pineapple syrup)
1 tsp cumin powder
chopped coriander leaves or mint leaves (optional)
a dash of salt
black pepper to taste

In bowl, beat the yogurt till smooth. Add sugar and dash of salt. Stir well. Add the pineapple chunks, black pepper to taste and chopped coriander leaves. Transfer mixture into a serving dish and chill before serving.

What an excellent idea! My husband is always saying the food I make is too spicy, the raita will be a nice chiller ;)
