Fried rice is a simple and nutritious dish to make – you get to clear leftover rice from dinner the day before, and it combines carbo, protein and fibre all in one wok. This dish, a signature dish of Thailand, adds a twist to your usual fried rice with two simple ingredients – pineapple and turmeric powder. These ingredients colour your rice and make the rice more aesthetically pleasing and tastier as well.
There are different methods to cook the pineapple rice. As I was using leftover rice (I concocted my plan to cook pineapple rice slightly before lunch), I added turmeric powder to the rice to colour it. Alternatively, you can cook the rice grains in diluted pineapple juice so that it absorbs the flavour of the pineapple fully.
