Spicy Pineapple Curry

This is a different way of adding fruits to your diet. Ripe diced pineapple is cooked with an aromatic blend of spices and simmered in coconut milk.

The iron and the fibre levels in this curry are good and the coconut adds to the protein and energy content.

If you are not fond of pineapple, add a cup of mixed vegetables like peas, carrots, potatoes to the same gravy, and you can also throw in a few cubes of pineapple, if you like.
