Melt jaggery with little water and keep it aside. In a kadai or pan put little oil and add chopped ginger and saute for few seconds, then add sliced shallots and saute for 1 minute. Add chopped pineapple and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Add chopped green chilli and saute for few seconds. Now add red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt, saute for few seconds. Add tamarind water and melted jaggery and cook on low medium flame, till you get thick consistency. It will take 8 to 10 minutes.
In a small pan add oil and splutter mustard seeds, then fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves. Pour this over the pineapple puli curry and stir well. Serve with warm rice.
NB: Once its cool down you can put it in a glass jar and keep it in the fridge, it stays one week. It tastes better next day like our puli inchi. Enjoy cooking..
