Anaros Morog/ Chicken curry with Pineapple

Morog/ chicken cooked with semi ripe sweet and sour pineapple- an East Bengal preparation.  It is a Sylheti speciality. Sylhet uses a lot of pineapple and citruses in it’s food, and in most creative ways owing to its topography.

Of some of these citrus dishes, my current favorite is the Chicken and Pineapple Curry which is slightly sweet, slightly hot and spicy dish that is mellow enough to serve to most diners. Serve with plain or slightly spiced long-grain rice.

While the dish sounds quiet exotic, it is simple and easy to prepare and can be easily served to guests at home.

  • Continue cooking the chicken covered for about 5-7 minutes on medium high flame. The chicken releases a lot of water therefore adding water will not be required.
