Pineapple Stir-fried Rice

After all the festivities and indulging in all the holiday cookies and sugary delights, we all look for healthier recipes and try to include more fruits and vegetables. This is that kind of recipe which will make you feel good about making it for yourself and your loved ones. Its a Thai Recipe. This rice dish goes really well with the Garlic shrimp recipe I posted earlier. It could also go well with Stir-fried vegetables. Its quick and easy to make. There are lot of variations in making this Fried Rice. You could even add chopped Chinese sausage, cooked chicken or cooked shrimp to it. I have just used Pineapple and eggs for this recipe.

  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 2 cups diced pineapple
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup red onion/5 shallots thinly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted cashews
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 green onions,thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 small fresh red chillies, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste (optional)

*** Fish sauce is recommended for this recipe, I have not used it though as we still have'nt acquired the taste for it yet , so its upto your discretion you could use it or leave it. Also salt is added when rice is cooked , thats the reason its optional.

Preparation :
1) Heat oil in a wok or a skillet and keep it on medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds, or until light golden.
2) Add eggs and stir fry for 30 seconds.
3) Add rice, pineapple and soy sauce and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until rice has separated and all the ingredients are mixed well.
4) Garnish with green onions, cilantro, cashews and sliced chilles.
