Every time I go to a Thai restaurant, one item that should be in common in my order is Pineapple fried rice. This year, I made it many times at home because of the lockdown, and every time, it was really turned out great. So though of sharing the recipe with you all. Here I made Shrimp pineapple fried rice, but you may use any other meat that you like. You may use chicken, pork, beef, or if you are a vegetarian, use vegetables and tofu and avoid using eggs, and fish sauce.
Prep time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 30 to 45 mins
Serving: 3 - 4
You need 3 cups of cooked rice for this recipe. It is better to cook the rice at least 2 to 3 hours before or a day before making fried rice. You can use regular long-grain rice, Jasmin rice, or basmati rice. I used jasmine rice that I cooked a day before.
Cut the pineapple in halves and gently scoop out the inside flesh portion. Do not forget to take out the core part. Then cube the flesh part. Save the pineapple shell for serving the cooked fried rice. I am using 1heapped cup of pineapple for this recipe.
