Sometimes I am in mood to make something really simple and yesterday I was in one such mood and so I decided to make pineapple fried rice. It is actually so simple to make, just cook some rice, throw in some veggies, pineapple and some soya sauce and you are done. The main part of this recipe is the prep work. Because I cooked the veggies on high flame [so that they remain crunchy] I kept everything ready before I started making the rice. You will not have time to chop while you are cooking so keep everything ready before you start.

I think it’s also a great way to use all the leftover veggies from your refrigerator. I added green pepper, onion, carrot and green peas, you can add any veggies of your choice. Corn and green beans would also taste great in this recipe. You can use any rice of your choice, I used white jasmine rice, any other rice would work just fine. This recipe is obviously for vegetarian pineapple fried rice since I am a vegetarian but meat-lovers can throw in some meat and adjust it to their taste.

Veggie Pineapple Fried Rice

* You can use brown or white rice for this. I used white jasmine rice and it worked just fine.

* It might also be a good idea to add some nuts [like cashews, peanuts] in the rice. It will provide a nice crunch.

* Remember to cook the veggies on high heat for 1-2 minutes, they should remain crunchy.

* In the recipe, I mention to use 1/4 of onion and bell peppers, that’s because the onion and bell pepper that I used were really huge. If you are using a regular one, use half of it.

* You can use either fresh or canned pineapple. I used canned Pineapple Chunks.

  2. It looks very delicious Manali! It is amazing how many different recipes you can make with rice! I love the idea of adding pineapple and can’t wait to try it!

  3. Hey Manali, the recipe looks great! Just curious, what brings the color of rice to yellow? Did you add some spice…
    I am planning on trying it out (but to a larger audience) and don’t wanna mess it up 🙂

    1. Hi Savita, the color of the rice is not yellow..it’s just brownish due to addition of soy sauce..The pineapples are yellow so the brown and yellow kind of give this that yellow look but the rice is brown, just follow the recipe as it is..i have not added any other spice! 🙂 Hope it turns out well, good luck!
