Thai Pineapple Chicken or Shrimp Fried Rice

Rice is the most staple food in Asian cuisine . It is served virtually in almost every meal and is quiet filling for the stomach.

Did you know the Mountain ranges of Himalayas provide crystal clear mineral water which is best for growing Basmati Rice.

This Thai Recipe was a weekend preparation.

But if you had been following this blog, you would know why I delayed posting it.

This is a classic combination of rice, pineapple and chicken where each ingredient nicely complement the other.

Though it is quite simple to make, it looks quiet wonderfully complex and colorful. If you serve them inside a scooped out Pineapple, it will become the star on your dinner table.

The key is to use normal rice instead of Basmati or the long grain rice.

What You Need:

1 cup uncooked rice
1 chicken breast about 250 grams (can replace with shrimp or use both)
Pineapple chunks 2 cups
1 egg beaten and seasoned with salt and pepper
1/2 cup sweet corn
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp chili sauce
1 tsp Worcester sauce
1 tsp fish sauce (optional)
salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp garlic chopped
1 tsp green chili chopped
1 tsp ginger chopped
1 tbsp sugar
1 onion chopped

Steps To Make:

Cook rice . Once rice is cooked, add a little oil and rub it gently with hands. The rice will stand apart when you cook them later.
In a pan, add little oil and cook egg. Once cooked, you can chop it or you can chop it with your spatula while its getting cooked.
Heat remaining oil in a wok i.e. a Chinese kadai.
Add chopped garlic, ginger and green chilies.
Once garlic turns brown, add onions and cook till it turns brown.
Add chopped chicken cubes and cook on high flame till chicken is well cooked.
Add corn, pineapple and mix.
Add tomato sauce, chili sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce and Worcester sauce.
Add rice, salt to taste, sugar and mix well. Cover and cook for 5 minutes on low flame.
Once cooked, add cooked eggs and mix well.
Serve in Pineapple shell or a normal rice bowl.
