Thai Fried Pineapple

Thai Fried Pineapple

A quick and easy Thai dessert, popularly served in road side shops and restaurants in Thailand. Very ideal dessert for any parties and potlucks as it does not involve much cooking time and can be served at room temperature. It also does not need any region specific ingredients except for the palm sugar which can be replaced with normal sugar. The sharp taste of the pineapple and the sweet taste of gula melaka (coconut palm sugar) make it very refreshing dessert at the end of a meal.
Make sure the pineapple is completely ripened. Traditionally coconut palm sugar is used however this can be replaced with brown sugar or processed sugar. If the pineapple is too sweet you can omit the sugar completely. It is shallow fried in butter hence if you are a diet watcher be cautious on the diet.  Do not omit the dollop of yogurt which is added at the end as it gives a good taste.
