2016-01-19 23.06.42


Don’t ask me why I am making lot of dishes with pineapple. Am I a pineapple fan ??

And the answer is no !!!

Actually we are living in a funny area.

Some fruits are found only in a particular month. And pineapple is available  in this month. I know I will not get pineapple for next 6  months. Last time I shared pineapple sweet rice a.k.a anaraser misti pulao but this time no sweet dishes, this one is savory one. A pulao with seasonal vegetable i. e. with green pea.i served this rice with chilli paneer. No doubt chicken kurma, raita will goes best with this dishes.
