Pineapple Chicken Korma

This is quick and easy delicious  pineapple korma which taste absolutely divine..I had some pineapple left after making pineapple chicken fried rice And wanted something to go along with it .First I decided to make pineapple chicken but then wanted something to go with Naans as well so suddenly thought of making korma I know it does  sounds weird as a combo korma with fried rice ..I too felt the same but then thought of trying this weird combo. .To my surprise it paired very well .The sweet tangy pineapple blended well with all spices and chicken korma was a big hit.
