How to make Karwar NKGSB style Vataane Ananasaa Shaak Recipe- Pineapple & Whites Peas Sabzi
To make Vataane Ananasaa Shaak Recipe, we need to first wash and soak the white peas overnight.
Next morning wash them thoroughly and keep aside.
In a pressure cooker add the drained white peas along with 1/2 cup of water, pressure cook for 3 whistles and then reduce the flame and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Turn off the flame.
Drain the white peas and set aside.
Heat a kadai on low flame, add oil to it.
Once the oil is hot, add the coriander seeds and red chillies and roast them on low flame till you notice a slight change in colour. Turn off the flame and allow them to cool.
In a mixer-jar, combine the cooled coriander seeds along with the grated coconut and grind into a smooth paste using sufficient water. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Heat a thick bottomed pan on medium flame,add the oil .When the oil heats up, add the mustard seeds. As soon as they splutter, add the asafoetida.
Immediately add the chopped onions and saute till they turn translucent.
Next add the turmeric powder and the pineapple chunks and mix well. Sprinkle some water, cover and cook the pineapple, stirring occasionally.
When the pineapple chunks are soft and fully cooked, add the cooked white peas and the ground coconut paste, the jaggery and salt to taste, and give it a good stir. Add just enough water so as to get a slightly thick gravy.
Bring to a boil, and reduce the heat. Simmer on low flame for a few more minutes for the coconut to cook fully.
Adjust the consistency of the gravy. Check seasoning and adjust if required.
Switch off the flame and transfer to a serving bowl.
