Thai Pineapple Vegetarian Curry

Thai Pineapple Vegetarian Curry Recipe is a lip smacking, beautifully flavoured mixed vegetable curry with pineapple as the star ingredient. Do give it a try in your kitchen to savour this sweet and spicy Thai curry.

The Thai Pineapple Vegetarian Curry Recipe is super simple dish to make and is a favorite at home. The sweetness and the sourness from the pineapple along with the vegetables simmered in an aromatic Thai flavoured broth tastes delicious. I have used a green curry paste to make this dish, but you can also use a yellow curry paste or even a red curry paste. Essentially you want to have the curry that is bursting with flavors from lemon grass.
