Pineapple Rasam

Pineapple is my favourite. However after moving to SG I cannot eat Indian pineapple. I get soar throat the moment I have it. However SG ones esp honey pineapple is ok with me. My kids are not big fan of pineapple. So whenever I go out for lunch with friends I always take pineapple juice. Recently if I make dishes with pineapple kids have it also. So I do pineapple based dishes. I have posted Pineapple Kesari, Pineapple Rice, Pineapple smoothie before. Today I am posting another dish with Pineapple Pineapple Rasam
