The husband has been wanting some pineapple fried rice. He wanted to order it a couple of times when we visited our favourite Thai restaurant. However, I’m not a big fan of raisins and it so happens that the fried rice at that food joint is pre-made, and I didn’t want to be picking out raisins from my plate. So in order to make up for it, I made him some. The girls enjoyed the pineapple fried rice too! I omitted curry powder that I usually add because of the girls but I’ll include it in the recipe if you like a little more spice in your rice. Oh, did I mention that you can make this in less than 30 mins? 🙂

Hi Sharon, I tried the pineapple rice yesterday and it turns out well. something different & my family loved it. I just reduced the turmeric powder to half tbsp., thinking the rice will be too yellow. I'm definitely going to keep this recipe.
thank you very much
