Pineapple Fried Rice | Vegetarian​ Pineapple Fried Rice

Posted by

This Pineapple fried rice looks pretty tempting and has a nice blend of sweet and savory flavor. This is absolutely a refreshing twist to the regular fried rice as the fresh pineapple chunks give a nice tropical taste to the fried rice. A healthy and delicious fried rice.
Any fried rice tastes delicious to me as I am a true rice lover. 😀 And obviously, it’s comparably easy to cook fried rice than cooking the whole elaborated meal. Just toss up the required ingredients and add the cooked rice. Fry for few minutes and your meal is ready in less than 15mins. Every time I buy Pineapple I end of using it either in smoothies or eat as it is. Nor that I hate using this way but there are so many recipes that tempt me to try at least once. So finally, after going through plenty of Pineapple dessert recipes I decided to try Pineapple fried rice as there was enough leftover rice from yesterday’s lunch. What’s better than using it in fried rice. This is the simplest Pineapple fried rice recipe I am sharing today and I am sure you will like the flavors. And for that, you just have to try this recipe once. 😀
I would suggest using a day-old rice because they don’t have any moisture and if you use same day rice they will have a lot of moisture and will get mushy. Hence not suitable to cook fried rice with the same day cooked rice. For vegetarians, you can add paneer or tofu for protein and for non-vegetarians, add few chunks of your favorite meat and enjoy the warm plate of Pineapple fried rice.

  • 4 Cups cooked jasmine rice or regular rice, use a day-old rice
