Notes

Usually, fresh pineapple chunks turns bitter when left in yogurt or milk for long hours. So, the best way to avoid bitterness of fresh pineapple in raita is to refrigerate whisked yogurt, pineapple chunks and pineapple masala paste seperately until ready to serve. When, you are about to serve it, just mix everything, pour the tadka and serve immediately. This way you will always avoid the pineapple turning bitter in yogurt. However, canned pineapple chunks always works best to make raita as they are heated and then preserved, Heating them knock down the enzyme responsible for turning it bitter. Hence canned pineapple raita never turns bitter when made in advance also.
So, you can go on ahead with making pineapple raita using canned pineapple.
