Recipe Ingredients for Thai Pineapple Fried Brown Rice

1 cup pineapple tidbits
2 cups cooked brown rice, preferably at least 1 day old
2 tbsp oil for stir-frying
2 small onions or shallots
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red or green chili
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 egg white
3 tbsp. chicken or vegetable stock
3 tbsp. fish sauce or soy sauce
2 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. sugar
3 spring onions, finely sliced
1/3 cup fresh coriander

Recipe Directions for Thai Pineapple Fried Brown Rice

  1. Start by preparing the rice. Add a little oil to the rice (up to 1 Tbsp.) and work through with your fingers. You want to separate the grains of rice, so that they don't stick together. Set aside.Stir frying the shallots, garlic, and chilli

  2. Swirl 1 Tbsp. oil around a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the shallots, garlic, and chili, stir-frying for one minute, or until fragrant. If using shrimp, add them now as well. Push aside the shallots, garlic, and chili to make room for the egg (if using). Add the beaten egg to the wok/pan, and stir fry quickly to cook (like making scrambled eggs).Mix together the chicken or vegetable stock, fish sauce (or soy sauce), curry powder, and sugar. Stir well, then add to wok/pan.Now add the prepared rice to the wok/pan. Stir-fry until all the rice has mixed with the sauce and is a uniform color. Break up any lumps with your utensil or a fork.You can push ingredients aside and add a little more oil to the bottom of the pan if rice is sticking. Stir-fry Tip: Continually lift/scoop up rice from the bottom of the pan, tossing rather than stirring it. Add the frozen peas, and pineapple. Stir-fry to mix in. Continue stir frying until everything is integrated (1-2 more minutes). Cooking tip: You should be able to hear some rice "popping" or crackling in the pan. Finally, do a taste test. If not salty enough, add 1 tsp to 1 Tbsp. more fish sauce (or salt if vegetarian). If not spicy enough, add more chopped fresh chili. If too salty for your taste, add a squeeze of lime or lemon juice. To serve, sprinkle with spring onion and coriander. Serve on a platter. Thai chili sauce can be served on the side for those who like it extra spicy.
