This is a wonderfully fresh and spicy dish that goes so well with biryani rice. The curry powder adds a lovely hint of heat to the sweet pineapple. Make some for lunch and your guests will be clamouring for more.

This actually tastes better the next day so keep it in the fridge overnight and then reheat.



Method

1. Heat the oil. Saute all the spices till fragrant.

2. Add in pounded ingredients, ginger and curry leaf. Saute till it's slightly brown in colour.

3. Put in curry paste and cook until the oil starts to bubble. Keep stiring to avoid burning the bottom of the pan.

4. Next add in coconut milk, kerisik, tamarind juice and pineapple.

5. Season with palm sugar and salt.

6. Continue cooking until the gravy starts to thicken.
