PINeApple FrIed Rice
Cooked rice for about three person portion (best is to use cooked rice that had been kept overnight in the fridge which is less soggy)
1 white onion, chopped
4-5 pips garlic, chopped
Any choice of chicken meat, squids or shrimps, about a fistful
Tiny pieces of pineapple, about a fistful.Â If you are using canned ones, drain, squeeze out the syrup, put under running water, squeezed dry again to reduce the sweetness.
Olive oil and butter (about 1 tablespoon each)
1 snack pack of cashew nuts (those that had been fried and salted)
Flavours made of salt, pepper, dashes of fish sauce. Do not use soya sauce as you want the rice to be whitish.
Unlike normal fried rice, pineapple fried rice is best being fried in this order.
Heat oil and butter and stiry fry onion and garlic till fragrant.Â Add in chicken/shrimp and stir further to cook it.Â Knock in eggs and mash them up. (usually, in fried rice, one would put the egg AFTER the rice but not here)
Add in rice and flavourings and stir till well mixed.
Scoop up and sprinkle with cashew nuts.
