Pineapple Sadam / Annachi pazha Sadam


I am so obsessed with Pineapple Rice that I came up with another recipe. You can find my previous version of Pineapple Rice here. This one is pretty much close to what I had in my cousin's wedding. Hope you relish it as I did :)

Ingredients from my Pantry
Basmati Rice - 1 cup (You can also use Sona Masori/Raw/Boiled Rice)
Pineapple chopped - 1 cup ( 1 x 1.5 cm) , you might need 3 round slices for 1 cup (peel the skin and remove the thorn like stuff)
Onion - 1 1/2 tbsp chopped or 1/4 of a small onion
Green Chili - 5
Ginger/Inji - 1/2 tsp chopped
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds/Kadugu - pinch
Cumin Seeds/Jeera/Jeeragam - pinch
Asafoetida/Hing/Perungayam - pinch
Turmeric Powder/Manjal Podi - 3 pinch
Curry Leaves/Karuveipilai/Karuveipaku - 4

Cooking Instructions
Cook Rice:
Boil the rice in a rice cooker/pressure cooker until it is 90% done (usually 2 or 3 whistles in a pressure cooker). You will need 1 - 1 1/4 cup of water to cook the rice.
or
You can also add 8-10 cup of water, add rice and boil it until it is 90% cooked. Drain the water using a strainer/sieve/conventional method. 
Pineapple mix: 

In a pan, add oil. When it hot, add mustard seeds and let it splutter. Add cumin seeds, hing, curry leaves, green chili, turmeric powder and saute for few seconds. 

Add chopped onions and saute for 2 minutes on a medium flame. 
Add pineapple, 1 tbsp of water and cook for 5 minutes on a low flame. Crush the pineapple slightly as you cook. 
P.S: Reduce green chili's if it is prepared for kids or if you want the dish to be mildly spiced.
Mixing it with Rice:

Add atleast 2 cup of boiled rice and mix it with the sauce (Just like how you make lemon rice or puliyogare)
Let it stay for a while and then serve. This allows the rice to absorb the flavor of pineapple.

I thought this recipe would be perfect for these events:
