August 12, 2015 Motions and Emotions 11 Comments

After getting an amazing response on raw papaya chutney, now I am going to share one more special chutney from Bengal. Now this time it is aanaras er chutney or Pineapple Chutney. Cutting pineapple is really a tough and time consuming job. If you think I am going to share any to trick to cut pineapple then I am going to disappoint you. It would be great if  someone can share an easy trick to cut pineapple.

These days you get peeled and cubes pineapple in super markets. However I normally buy a whole pineapple and manage to cut by my own thinking I would surely invent a new and easy trick to cut it :). Coming back to the recipe, it calls for very less ingredient and taste really delicious.

Aanaras er Chutney / Bengali Style Pineapple Chutney


Aanaras/ Pineapple - 2 cups, cut into small cubes
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Rasin - 2 tablespoon
Mustard Seeds - 1 teaspoon
Refined Oil - 2 teaspoon


There are two ways to prepare the chutney. If you prefer the crunchiness of pineapple then use it as cubes and if you don't like the crunchiness you can grate the pineapple pieces.

1. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Once they crackle add pineapple pieces or grated pineapple.

2. After stirring for few minutes, add water (2 cups) and cook the pineapple. It will take 10 to 15 minutes. Cook under slow flame.

3. If you have taken pineapple pieces, after boiling them mash (50%) them using a masher. If you are using grated pineapple no need of mashing.

4. Now add sugar and raisin. Allow the sugar to dissolve. If water gets dried add little more water and if you have excess water allow it to dry. Cool it and serve it. You can keep it in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
