Recipe: Pineapple Fried Rice

The way to my inner fat girl, heart since college has always been pineapple fried rice. To this day, I have never had a pineapple fried rice like that of Thai Garden in Northampton, MA. I mean, Lemongrass comes close, but the tomato sauce and the tomatoes are way too much tomato for me, lol.  Being no where close to MA and Spice all the way in the city, lol, I looked up a recipe for pineapple fried rice that uses curry powder.  I found a good one at


  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless chicken meat, cubed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained


  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Set the cooked rice aside. Mix together curry powder, fish sauce, and pineapple juice in a small bowl.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers, and cook and stir the chicken and onion until the chicken is no longer pink and the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked rice, pineapple chunks, and curry mixture, and cook and stir until the fried rice is hot, 5 to 10 minutes.

Happy “Cooking” Ladies!! :-) xx
