Pineapple Chutney- Bengali Style.

I am really enjoying being part of the Recipe swap group in facebook where like minded food bloggers join forces and create a recipe from their allocated partners blog. This encourages you to discover new cuisines and broadens your culinary choice. 

This is the June challenge for recipe swap and this month I was allocated  by Priya Iyer' s blog The Photowawali. Her blog features many recipes as well as travel post which I really enjoyed reading.

Looking through Priya's blog I short listed about 5 recipes but finally settled for the Bengali Style Pineapple chutney called Anarosher Chaatni. I recreated the recipe with very little changes and it turned out delicious.

Pineapple Chutney-(Bengali Style)

Sweet and tangy Pineapple cooked with an aromatic spice blend to make the tastiest chutney.
prep time: 5 Mcook time: 25 Mtotal time: 30 M


  • 240g fresh pineapple diced.
  • 2 tablespoons jaggery
  • 1 teaspoon panch phoran (Bengali spice mix found in Asian supermarkets)
  • 1 tablespoon light olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 red dried chilies
  • 1 bayleaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons raisins (optional) I did not use.


How to cook Pineapple Chutney-(Bengali Style)

  1. Add the chopped pineapple into a saucepan and add the water, cook the pineapple for 15 minutes until its soft.
  2. Using a potato masher break down the pineapple. You can blend it in a food processor but I like a coarse texture so just used the masher.
  3. In another pan add the oil , when it's hot add the bay leaf and red chillies.
  4. Next add the panch phoran, cumin, red chilli powder and salt and saute the spices for 30 seconds.
  5. Add the cooked pineapple and the jaggery and cook for another 5 minutes until the jaggery melts and the liquid has evaporated.
  6. Remove the chutney from the flame and allow it to cool. Transfer it to a sterilised jar and store in the fridge.
