Pineapple Pulao Recipe
This Pineapple Pulao was in my mind since I tried Kashmiri Pulao.This Pineapple Pulao is another take or short route to the traditional Kashmiri Pulao.If you like mildly sweet pulao recipes then this is just for you.I made this for amma as she loves such pulaos with fruits and nuts.

And this bowl was gifted to me by Shyamala of myhealthykiddo and I so love this bowl :) Thanks a lot Shyamala for all those thoughful gifts!

Pineapple Pulao Recipe

My Notes:

  • If you dont want the spices to come while eating then discard them after cooking the rice.
  • Dont add pineapple while rice is hot it will leave out water.
  • You can even add  fried onions.
  • Choose pineapple that is just ripe, the pieces should not be mushy.
  • You can skip jeera while tempering and add roasted jeera powder too.
  • Presoaking rice not only cooks the rice faster, it gives nice soft fluffy rice.
  • The pulao is mildly sweet.
  • The addition of tutti frutti adds a nice twist to this rice.
