Pineapple Rasam

Pineapple rasam is a special variety of rasam with distinct flavour and taste. Here in my place, I get a lot of pineapples at Rs 10 per fruit during the season. So I wanted to try something new with the pineapple. I remember having Pineapple rasam in many weddings. And I tried the same and it was yummy. My FIL became a great fan of this recipe. He told me that he hasn’t tasted this before and it is delicious.  I too love this rasam.
