In Sri Lanka, pineapple is not only a fruit. When they are unripe you can prepare a tasty curry (you can cook ripe ones too which will make the curry a little bit sweet). This is not a everyday dish. Mostly this curry is made for special occasions and served with fried rice or yellow rice. I can remember my mother used to add coconut milk to this. But I love this spicy way of cooking. Everybody at home loves this dish. hope you will like it too.
