Thai Pineapple Kodri ( Exotic Diabetic Recipe )


Added to 12 cookbooks   This recipe has been viewed 8444 times

An authentic Thai yellow curry paste made with lemon grass lends its magic to this pineapple kodri. An exotic and interesting recipe that is quite a favourite with me – but not too ‘lean’, if you know what I mean! So, whip this up as a treat only when your blood sugar levels are within control.

Select a fully-ripe pineapple as it will cook faster and taste better. Thai cooking is incomplete without coconut and coconut milk. Both these are high in calories and on the forbidden ingredients list of diabetics; however in order to get the original thai flavour in dishes, I have used a small quantity (¼ cup) of coconut milk.
