Pineapple Curry in Coconut Milk

Photobucket


Don't just think of Vitamin C alone when thinking of pineapple also think of Bromelain, Manganese and Dietary fiber. Pineapple is a very good source of Bromelain. Bromelain is an effective anti-inflammatory enzyme found in pineapple's fruit and stem. It may help relieve swelling caused by sports injuries and surgery.

Eating pineapple may benefit your bones. A cup of pineapple chunks contains 76 percent of your daily need for manganese, an essential mineral required for the synthesis of healthy bone and cartilage.  So nothing to lose in eating this healthy fruit but if you are on a low sugar diet, check out the fructose content of Pineapple to adjust your daily intake of fructose.



Delicious flavorful pineapple and the yummy tasting coconut milk are surely an unbeatable combination. With an array of flavors and taste this curry pairs so well with some cooked brown rice with vegetables. Very simple to put together and takes very less time to cook. Try this curry out if haven't tried out before and let me know what you think about this.



Preparation Time - 15 Minutes

Cooking Time - 10 Minutes

Serves - 2





Ingredients



Pineapple chunks-1 cup

Bell Pepper - 1 Cup (preferably green, red, yellow but I had only yellow in hand so used that alone)

Onion - 1 small (chopped)

Coconut Milk - 1 Cup

Salt - 1/2 Tsp or to taste

Thai yellow curry paste - 1 Tbsp or to taste

Soy sauce - 1 Tsp

Handful Chopped Coriander leaves & Green onion pieces- to garnish

Sesame Oil-2 tsp



Method


1) Heat a pan and add 1 Tsp of oil, add onions and fry till they are nicely browned. Now add the bell pepper pieces and saute for 2 minutes. Keep the vegetables aside.



2) Now add the remaining oil, once its warm add the yellow curry paste and saute for a few minutes(1-2). Then add the coconut milk, sauteed vegetables, pineapple pieces, salt and soy sauce. Cover and cook in medium heat for 5 minutes.



3) Garnish with chopped cilantro and green onion pieces.



Note - When buying Thai curry paste, do check for the ingredients and buy the ones which says suitable for vegetarians. This curry is lying in my drafts for more than a year. So I don't remember the brand of the yellow thai curry paste I used. If I happen to see the one suitable for vegetarians, will update this post here. Also to add more color and taste to this curry, try adding baby corn, carrots, tempeh and miso pieces along with the vegetables.
