Pineapple Menskai/ Pineapple Curry

 
Pineapple Menskai/ Pineapple Curry

Today while having Pineapple Juice suddenly I remembered one of my favoriate dish of my native place Mangalore made out of Pineapple.

Pineapple Meskai is one of the renowned  fruity dish of coastal  Karnataka especially in South Kanara  region.  Coconut and curry leaves are common ingredients to most Mangalorean Curry.  This dish can be made out of Mango also. So enjoy this fruity ,spicy and  juiciness of Pineapple in a different way.
