Easy Pineapple Curry

Pineapple curry or gojju is a sweet taste curry and goes well with almost all dishes. It is one of the traditional dish done normally during the festival or feast.

I have used Sesame seeds, little dry coconut, pineapple and jaggery.
Lets see some benefits of eating Coriander seeds in our diet.
Coriander seeds are rich in dietary fiber. The seeds have good source of important fatty acids. They are rich in Omega - 6, anti flatulent and anti oxidant properties.  It is good for digestive system and help the people who suffer from constipation problems. The seeds help to lower the bad cholesterol levels. They do contain minerals like Iron, copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc and magnesium. Iron helps in cell metabolism and red blood cell formation.

Rasam Powder : Roast 1/4 Teaspoon of methi/fenugrik seeds, 2 tablespoons of coriander seeds, 5  to 6 byadagi red chilly, 1/2 Teaspoon of jeera/cumin seeds. Add asafoetida and curry leaves and mix it well. Let it cool. Dry grind this roasted mixture to get rasam powder. (Must do it on low flame to get the good aroma. (Do not burn or over roast).
