What if Pineapple Raita Turns Bitter :

Pinepple raita turns bitter because raw pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain which reacts with the curd / dahi here and gives a bitter taste to the raita.
This does not happen if the pineapple raita is consumed immediately. It takes 30 mins for the enzyme to start reacting.
If you are using canned pineapple then bitterness will not occur because heating pineapple at high temperature destroys the enzyme. So to prevent bitterness you can use canned pineapple for the raita or you can cook pineapple in sugar and water mixture for 5 minutes.
