Curry Pineapple Fried Rice Recipe
Thailand is the inspiration for this quick, stir-fried dish of rice, curry, chicken meat, and pineapple.
Love pineapple? Curry? Then try this easy and very tasty twist on plain rice!! Jasmine rice is very aromatic, and easy and fast to cook. I created this mixture on my own when searching the fridge for something different to add to rice.
This is a quick, easy, and authentic Thai curry dish that's sweet and very spicy. I became addicted to the dish at a local restaurant and then worked to duplicate it at home.
There is normally a two-to-one ratio of liquid to rice, and normally rice is simmered for 20 minutes. I knew this before I tried the recipe, but decided to trust the recipe for some reason. Bad idea! After 10 minutes, most of the liquid was gone, the rice was far from being done, and the rice was sticking to the bottom of the pan and beginning to burn. I had to add more water (didn't have any more pineapple juice) and simmer rice until it was done. I didn't care for the flavor, but by the time I went to eat it, I was thoroughly disgusted with the recipe for having the incorrect liquid-to-rice ratio and incorrect simmering time, and disappointed in myself for following the recipe and not my own instincts, and this may have tainted my judgment of the flavor.
Any curry paste will work in this easy fried rice dish with coconut milk, pineapple, and vegetables.
I was short on the juice with only about one cup, so I added a cup of water to make a two-one ration. I also upped the cooking time to about 20 minutes. The rice came out cooked to perfection. I must say that, as curry lovers, my husband and I found this to have a bit too much curry. I will make it again but reduce the curry by at least half. For those of you who have a problem with rice sticking to the pan, make sure you reduce heat to as low as possible. If you still have problems, coat your pan with a tad of vegi oil, though in this recipe, the butter should help.
a little too spicy for my two young kids but I thought it was great - gave me some other ideas for more rice dishes - thanks
