Pineapple Rasam

The first time I saw this on their site was actually impressed and made a mental note that I will have to try it next when I get Pineapple. After this I forgot about it for a while and again saw the this rasam making its rounds through the blogosphere. Everytime I saw it I was remembered that this is on my to do list. Finally one day I went ahead and bought the Pineapple and came back home to make it. Thats when I realized that the recipe called for Canned and I had Fresh one!! Yes this is what I do don't read the recipe properly and then continue!
But since I had not planned anything else I as well thought that I will go ahead and give it a shot with fresh Pineapple. It really came out well and hubby dear was impressed :) Happy me.
To  see Jai's recipe Click here.
The modifications that I made was to boil Pineapple with water until its colour changed to a lighter shade (or alternatively as my friend, Smitha suggested pressure cook it for one whistle) and while adding crushed Pineapple to Rasam I added jaggery to taste. 
This is definitely a change from the usual Rasam or Dal and has a sweet,spicy and tangy taste. Using a canned Pineapple would definitely be an easier way to do but I did not want to wait until I buy one next time. I am definitely going to make this often! Thanks Jai for this wonderful jhatpat recipe.
