Pineapple coconut curry is a sweet and sour delicacy typically served in weddings and festivals. It is also called as "Ananas menaskai or menasinakayi sasive" in Udupi and Mangalore region. 

Ananas means pineapple, menasinakayi means chili and sasive means mustard in Kannada. Gojju is pronounced as "gujju" in English. In Banglore and Mysore region, it is called "Pineapple Gojju".  

Pineapple menaskai gojju recipe calls for fresh coconut, jaggery, bydagi red chilis, sesame seeds, urad dal, channa dal as main ingredients. Jaggery is added to give a sweet and sour flavor to the recipe.

Bydagi red chili is one of the red chili variety available in Karnataka. It gives a beautiful deep reddish hue to the pineapple gojju. But here I have used a normal red chili variety. You can use Kashmiri red chili as well.

The spicy, sweet and tangy pineapple gojju is a no onion and no garlic recipe, so it is a perfect side dish for the festival season. Also, it is a mandatory dish served on a green banana leaf during weddings and special occasions in the northern part of Karnataka. 

Moreover, it is also a vegan/ vegetarian pineapple coconut curry as there are no dairy ingredients included in this recipe.

Ananas Sasive tastes delicious with hot steamed rice, vegetable pulao, roti, chapati, puri, etc. My ammama(grandmother) makes raw mango gojju often at home, especially during summer. The gojju/sauce ingredients remain the same and she just replaces the fruits and veggies as per the season. I will soon post my favorite mango gojju.
