I love everything about this recipe. it's a perfect combination, flavourful and easy to prepare. There is a little surprise sweetness from the pineapple, a bit of creaminess from the coconut and mild spiciness derived from the Thai Curry paste,  and by adding little lime juice and coriander enhances the flavours and lightly roasted cashew adds a bit of crunch. So many amazing flavours, textures and ingredients in one dish which makes this rice extra special. Moreover, this rice is completely vegan and gluten free itself, which adds an extra point to this dish.

We Love Rice, although we try to cut down on it, occasionally good flavoured rice dishes have always been appreciated by the family, I just need to prepare some fresh salad and raita to make a complete meal. This Beetroot, Tofu and English Mustard rice, a wholesome one pot meal is a great choice for a lunch or dinner or this easy peasy Green Peas and Potato Rice is a great comfort food and always makes me so cosy. This Coconut, Pineapple Thai Fried Rice is no exception!

When I prepared Mango Kadhi, I also prepared this rice dish first time and sent it to our daughter who studies away from home. Because I was preparing quite a few dishes same time early in the morning, I decided to prepare fried rice, so most of the preparation for this rice was done on the previous night. Rice turned out incredibly tasty, each mouthful tasted better than the last one and the amazing taste surprised us all. After few days, I received these texts from daughter!
