I served the Thai Pineapple Curry with basmati rice. I liked the addition of spinach to this curry making it slightly more healthier. Thai cuisine is known for this. They use all the ingredients which have medicinal value.
I had some chopped pineapple lying in my fridge and I wanted to try recipes with it. Apart from eating it as is and making fruit juices to beat the summer heat, I thought of trying some Thai dishes. My hubby once told me that he tried Thai food in The USA and he just loved it. Since then I wanted to try some of the dishes at home. I also had Nita Mehta’s cookbook in which a nice and easy Thai Pineapple Curry recipe was mentioned. The recipe was easy to follow and it turned really good. I tweaked the recipe slightly as per my preference.
Thai food pays attention to taste, look, smell, texture and is usually served with rice, mostly steamed long grain jasmine rice. The dishes are lightly prepared and have strong aroma and spicy edge. They use coconut milk just like we use in Goa. Sometimes I feel that the Thai dishes taste like our Goan traditional dishes. We also make Pineapple curry in coconut milk in Goa. We call it pineapple sansav and I will share that recipe soon.
