A curry-flavored chicken and pineapple curry Sri Lankan style is just what you need to cook for dinner.

How can you resist the temptations of a dish made with pineapple and chicken?

I certainly can’t.

I love pineapples and you’ll notice, I do have quite a few of these recipes on the blog.

I’ve made a kid-friendly, mildly spiced pineapple curry, a spicy pineapple curry for adults, I’ve made a pineapple bread pudding my kids’ love, a Hawaiian pineapple fried rice and this list will probably grow.

Confessio. pineapple has and always been one of my favorite fruits.

Pineapple chicken curry reminding you of home.

With this recipe, I wanted to make a curry that has the basic Sri Lankan flavors.

It’s made for people who like their spicy food but won’t bite into raw green chillies for an extra burst of fire.

But if you are like my husband and do like extra fire in your mouth,  make sure to add a little extra chilli powder, a little Jaffna curry powder to make it a truly spicy Sri Lankan curry.

It’s a curry recipe you can just add over a plate of rice and needs no side dishes. a meal for tired souls(like me)who sometimes need just a filling meal for the family.
