Apple and Pineapple raita

Yesterday evening i had to entertain a few friends at real short notice. I manage to conjure up some pulav and carrot halwa out of my thin pantry stocks. But i did not have cucumbers/tomatoes to make the traditional Pacchadi that is served with pulav. Instead i had a couple of apples and a opened can of pineapple ring..a viola i had a yummy pacchadi/raita.

We will need,

Apple 2 chopped
Pineapple 3 rings (canned or fresh both would do. i had used canned pineapple)
yogurt  1 cup
salt to taste
sugar 1 big pinch
chat masala 1 big pinch

  • Beat the yogurt till smooth, add a little water if it is too thick. 
  • Mix in the salt, sugar and chat masala. Set it aside for 10 minutes. 
  • Fold in the apple and the pineapple.  Garnish it with Mint/ corriander (cilantro) or Blackberries like I have (well those were the only ones left in the refrigerator). Serve it with pulav...
