Title: South: mangalore pineapple curry (mangai kari
Categories: Indian, Sauces
Yield: 2 Servings
1 ts Sesame seeds
1/4 ts Fenugreek seeds
1 tb Flaked unsweetened coconut
8 oz Pineapple chunks in
1/4 ts Turmeric

A classic of the Mangaloreans in southern India, this recipe
traditionally uses small green mangoes. Try it as a side dish with
Cornish hens or roast turkey.
Combine sesame seeds, fenugreek and coconut in an 8 to 10-inch
skillet. Dry-roast over medium heat, shaking pan often until seeds
become aromatic and darken 1 or 2 shades, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place
in a spice or coffee grinder and reduce to a powder. Combine
pineapple chunks and juice with turmeric, brown sugar, salt, cayenne
and ground spice mixture in a 1-quart saucepan. Cover, and cook over
medium heat until thick, about 8 to 10 minutes. Heat oil in a small
frying pan over medium-high heat. Add mustard seeds; when seeds pop
(takes about 1 minute) stir in curry leaves or cilantro. Remove
immediately and pour over pineapple curry.
