Caramelised Pineapple with Dipping Yogurt


I actually feel incredibly guilty to publish this as a recipe, as it is not much of a recipe but rather an assembly of products. However during my travels to India I have found this street food so refreshing and tantalizing and I have used it at so many breakfasts and brunches that I thought I must publish it.

My Helpful Hint: You’ll need one large pineapple for every 6-8 guests. You can do this with other fresh fruit as well and to save time you don’t have to fry them.

Prep Time: 15 mins | Cook Time: 15 mins | Recipe: Very Easy | Serve: 6

Products you’ll need:

  • 1 Large Pineapple
  • 100g Demerara Sugar
  • 20g Chili Flakes
  • 500ml Greek Yogurt
  • 200ml Sweet Chili Sauce (make your own or store bought is ok)
  • Bamboo forks

To Assemble/Make:

  • Peel the pineapple, cut into 1cm thick or 6 slices, lightly sprinkle both sides with a little demerara sugar and then quarter each slice.
  • Pan-fry the pineapple in a dry pan until caramelised on both sides – takes seconds to caramelised and take care not to burn the sugar too much.
  • Stick a bamboo fork in each, sprinkle with chili flakes and serve with 50ml Greek Yogurt topped with 25ml Sweet Chili Sauce.

Here I have done it with Melon & Dragon Fruit.



Welcome to my two Blogs, each representing the two great passions in my life: Food & Yoga.

I sell gourmet street food, Paninis, Gourmet Bunny Chow, Bombay Frankies, Bobotie Meat Kebabs and Chai on markets in and around Pretoria. I also offer my services as a private chef or as a caterer. I am a part time yoga teacher with 17 years of doing yoga and 8 years of teaching yoga behind me. I teach Intergal Hatha Yoga and has small classes in Queenswood, Pretoria.
