Pineapple & Peanut delight

Updated: Jul 1, 2020

Cooking food is an art, combining ingredients within the boundaries set by food chemists is innovation. Pineapple & peanut isn't a mashup created by myself but enjoyed in so many countries around the world. Introducing Sri Lankan kick to those very popular combination is something I enjoyed.

Pineapple is a Vitamin C rich fruit we all love ,with low calories & low cholesterol level, while peanuts have high calories, rich nutrients & low carbs.This might be a reason why there are so many food recipes with these two ingredients together.

For a fact, pineapple is known to aid digestion, boost immunity & speeding up recovery from surgeries. On the other hand majority of fats in peanuts are heart-healthy fats.

This is how I combined these 2 ingredients to match our taste buds.


Pineapple small sized

Peanuts 5g

Garlic 3 or 4 cloves

Medium Onion 1/2

Green chillies 2 or 3

Curry leaves 5 or 6

Chilli flakes 2 tsp

Pepper 1/2 tsp

Salt 1/2 tsp

Sugar 1 n 1/2 tsp

03) Once they are slightly cooked, add cubes of pineapple.

04) Then add chilli flakes, salt & pepper.

05) Onions and sugar should be added after mixing well.
