Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add the mustard seeds, cover, and cook until the seeds have stopped popping, 20 to 30 seconds.
Add the pineapple, raisins, garlic and chiles to taste.
Reduce the heat to medium and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the raisins are plump and the fruit is lightly browned, about 10 minutes or longer.
Stir in the sugar and cook until it dissolves, about 2 minutes.
Add the salt and ground coriander, pour in the water.
Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is syrupy-thick, about 15 minutes.
Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled.
