This pineapple raita has little bit sweet taste and very little spicy taste. As it is sweeter raita, so recommended to serve it with any spicy biryani or pulao. Or even as a side dish with meal (spicy curry w/ flatbread like paratha). It will balance out your

This raita is very cooling and refreshing side dish for any meal. Not only this, any raita recipe has cooling effect to your body. Because raita is made from yogurt. And yogurt has very cooling properties. During the summer, I definitely include any yogurt based dish in our meal everyday.

Whenever I buy pineapple, I have to make this delicious raita for me as I love pineapple in any way. I like to eat this raita as such alone as a afternoon snack. Isn’t it perfect for hot summer afternoon snack? Take out the bowl of it from fridge, take a spoon and enjoy. So cooling and refreshing.

I have cooked the pineapple pieces with sugar. So sugar is absorbed by the pineapple pieces. I did this way because I like little soft and sweet pieces to bite in the raita. But if you like crunchier then add without cooking it.

I have added some toasted walnuts for some crunch. And it gives nice nutty flavor to the raita. If you don’t like then you can skip it. Or instead of walnuts, you can add chopped almonds.

Raita tastes best when served chilled.

Serving suggestion: Serve with spicy rice dish, biryani or pulao like Hyderabadi veg biryani, spicy veg pulao or tawa pulao. Even you can have it as a side dish with your meal (especially when you have spicy curry in your meal.). This tastes good with kashmiri pulao too.
