Heavenly Pineapple Thai Fried Rice Recipe
This classic Thai pineapple fried rice with golden grains of rice jeweled with chunks of juicy pineapple, cashews, and raisins create a taste that will make your mouth water! Make it as the main course or as a beautiful side dish to any meal. You can serve it in a carved-out pineapple like they do in Thailand, which is quite easy and fun.
  1. Mix 1 tablespoon water with the rice, using your fingers to separate any chunks into grains. Set the rice aside.
  2. Drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons water in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and chili, stir-frying until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the carrots and peas. Stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Now add the rice, pineapple chunks, raisins, and cashews and mix together.
  5. Drizzle the soy sauce mixture over and gently stir-fry to combine over medium-high to high heat for about 5 minutes.
  6. To serve, scoop rice onto a serving platter or in a carved-out pineapple. Garnish with spring onions and cilantro.
