Jonathan's class celebrated International Friendship Day and he called me from school asking if I can cook pineapple rice for his class as their theme is Thai. So here it is my pineapple rice. Brought two pineapples filled with rice plus another big box of pineapple rice for his class. Heard from Jon that the kids finished everything. Happy that the children enjoyed it.
100g chicken breast (diced)
100g prawns (shelled)
2 pcs of Chinese sausages (diced) (optional)
10 shallots sliced
2 cloves garlic (minced)
4 cups cold cooked rice
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp yellow ginger powder
some coriander leaves for garnishing
some pork/chicken floss
a little salt to taste
Cut the pineapple into halves, scoop out the fruit. Dice enough of the pineapple to fill a cup. Reserve the shell of the pineapple for later use.
Brown the shallots with oil. Remove and set aside for later use. Fry prawns and Chinese sausage (if using) and set aside. Brown the minced garlic and add in chicken. Fry until the chicken is cooked. Add in rice, fish sauce, pepper, pineapple, Chinese sausage and prawns and yellow ginger powder. Stir well. Add a little salt to taste.
Heat the pineapple shell in the oven at medium heat for about 10 mins. Scoop the rice into the pineapple shell. Sprinkle some fried shallots and floss and coriander leaves on top before serving.
