  5. Add pineapple, 1 tbsp of water and cook for 5 minutes on a low flame.
  6. Crush the pineapple slightly as you cook.

Mixing it with rice:

  1. Add at least 2 cups of boiled rice and mix it with sauce (Just like how you make lemon rice or puliyogare)
  2. Let it stay for a while and then serve.
  3. This allows the rice to absorb the flavor of pineapple.
