Thai Pineapple Fried Rice is a classic Thai recipe, and a one-pot meal that can be put together in no time at all. Unlike the basic vegetable fried rice, the addition of pineapple slices, cooked in oyster sauce and lemon juice, adds a spicy sweet tang that makes this dish irresistible. Here is how to make Pineapple Thai Fried Rice at home.
Mostly, I sort my dinner with one pot meals. And, thinking about one pot meals, Thai Pineapple Fried Rice comes to my mind after One Pot Pesto Chicken always! This Fried Rice with Pineapple Thai Style is a great dish to try if you a fan of Authentic thai food.
This rice dish can also be made with meats such as chicken or seafood, which is pre-cooked/pre-fried and added. Usually fresh rice is good, but the dish also works well with leftover rice. I have kept my TPFR Recipe Vegetarian. However, you can even make it with shrimps, chicken, scrambled eggs and fish sauce. In both the veg and non-veg variations, during the stir fry of rice, you would definitely add white pepper, soy sauce, green onion because these ingredients actually enhance the flavour of the dish. As this is a complete pan and stir dish, you can set aside cooked rice and can bring it together with a tablespoon of oil and other ingredients in no time. That way, you can serve it hot.
The Thai pineapple fried rice can be enjoyed with Thai Basil Chicken with side of Spicy Green Papaya Salad. So, this weekend stir up all rice, pineapple, cashew with sauces and serve magic in a pineapple boat. Finally, sharing my recipe for Thai Pineapple Fried Rice:
