A classic of the Mangaloreans in southern India, this recipe traditionally
uses small green mangoes. Try it as a side dish with Cornish hens or roast

Combine sesame seeds, fenugreek and coconut in an 8 to 10-inch skillet.
Dry-roast over medium heat, shaking pan often until seeds become aromatic
and darken 1 or 2 shades, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a spice or coffee
grinder and reduce to a powder. Combine pineapple chunks and juice with
turmeric, brown sugar, salt, cayenne and ground spice mixture in a 1-quart
saucepan. Cover, and cook over medium heat until thick, about 8 to 10
minutes. Heat oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Add mustard
seeds; when seeds pop (takes about 1 minute) stir in curry leaves or
cilantro. Remove immediately and pour over pineapple curry.

Serve hot.
