Pineapple Hot and Sweet Pachadi

I love the Pineapple Hot and Sweet Pachadi served in Tamil marriages very much. The flavour of pineapple with salt, sweet and hotness really tickles the taste buds and makes me to ask for the second time. I make this often at home as a side dish for bread toast and Rotis too...
