Pineapple Raita and Pineapple Salad - 2 ways to use Pineapple | Quick Side dish for Pulav and Biryani

Well, after a delicious PineappleCoco Cooler yesterday, today’s dish is a quick to put together Raitha and Salad… yes, its pretty much the same ingredients for both the raita and Salad, so feel free to make a standalone salad or a raitha (yoghurt based dish) to go with the One Pot Meals or Biryani / Pulaos… Sending this to Blogging Marathon Day 2 of Cooking with Pineapple (the chosen fruit of the week)…

Prep time : 15 mins | Zero Cook | Serves :2
Serving Suggestions : Pulao, Roti, Paratha.



Ingredients:
  • Pineapple Chunks – 1 cup
  • Cucumber Cubes – ½ cup
  • Salt – to taste

  • Pomegranate pearls – a handful



Additional – to make the Raita :

  • Whisked yoghurt – 1 cup
  • Sugar – a pinch
  • Tempering : Mustard seeds, oil (1/2 tsp), Roasted cumin powder (1/2 tsp)
