Pineapple Fried Rice
This delectable mouthwatering rice dish strikes a perfect balance between sweet and spicy flavors with a satisfying lingering fruity taste.
Here is my take on Thai style pineapple fried rice.
What do you need for 3 Servings
2 cups cooked jasmine rice (400gm approx)
1 cup sliced pineapple (Bite sized chunks)
200 gms shrimp/prawn (Vegetarians can use Tofu)
1/2 cup capsicum
1/2 cup sweet corn (optional)
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp pepper powder
1/2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 red chili
4 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp of oil
Salt (as per taste)
Jasmine Rice/Water Ratio (one cup of rice : 2 cups of water)
Take a vessel, add 4 cups of water bring it to boil then add 2 cups of rice and 1 tsp salt.
Stir once and cover it with lid. Cook for 10 mins, Let the rice absorbs all water.
Allow the cooked rice to cool at least for 2 hours.
Clean the prawns and cut it in half.
Chop capsicum, onion and take out the corn kernels from corn.
Finely chop red chili and crush the garlic cloves.
Mix curry powder with pepper powder and brown sugar.
In medium flame pour oil in a kadai, Add chopped garlic, chili, onions and saute it for 30 secs. [PIC 1]
Set the flame high, add corn kernels and chopped capsicum, Cook it for a minute. Keep this aside. [PIC 2 & 3]
In the same kadai pour a tsp of oil, add prawns and cook them for 2 mins.(Vegetarians replace prawns for Tofu) [PIC 4]
Now add cooked jasmine rice and then curry,pepper,brown sugar mixture, Stir and saute it for a minute. [PIC 5 & 6]
Add sauteed veggies, mix it well. [PIC 7]
Pour soya sauce and give it a good mix. [PIC 8]
Add cut pineapple chunks, give a quick stir and finish it by garnishing the dish with chopped spring onions and few cashews. [PIC 9 & 10]
Tempting and Enticing isn’t? Enjoy!
Fish sauce will be added in authentic Thai style pineapple fried rice.
After adding pineapple don’t cook for long the fruit will start to lose water.
To get nice texture Cook the rice overnight to avoid clumps and mushiness.
Vegetarians can add Tofu instead of Shrimp or Prawn.
Any veggies can be added based on your liking.
