Odia’s Sapuri khatta

To be honesty I never thought I will make a chutney from pineapple or such chutney did existed. I try to eat fruit on its own. But while I was searching for recipes, I found this quite interesting. I thought of making the dalma or the cheena poda but the khatta was always back on my mind. Now I did not wanted to make the tomato khatta, as last month I did share a tomato based recipe, No Oil Tomato Chutney from Nagaland for this challenge.

And with mango I have already made lounji, a khatta North Indian recipe from my mom’s kitchen (Recipe coming soon). So I thought of using pineapple. Generally pineapple here comes sweet, but fortunately this pineapple had no sweet taste. My 3 year old rejected it too. So making this Sapuri khatta was an ideal choice.
