The pineapple curry is best enjoyed with rice, but can also be eaten with chappati or dosa.To spruce up the curry, you can add chicken to the curry as well. To do this, pre-cook about 300 gm of chicken breast which has been cut into chunks, preferably boil them. After this, add the chicken to the curry at Step 3 along with the pineapple and let it further simmer in the curry, after which it will absorb the juices and will have a tangy taste.
