Thai Pineapple Fried Rice

Today's been a slow day since hubby and DD left to work and school. So decided I'll make Thai Pineapple Fried Rice for dinner. Thought I'll share the recipe..


Pineapple 1 cup cut to cubes
Carrots 1/2 cup cut to juliennes
Red Bell Pepper - 1/2 cup- 1 cup
Frozen Peas - 1/2 cup
Garlic 1 tbsp minced
Chilli Soy - 3 tsps
Soy sauce - 1 tsp
Salt - To taste
Cooked Rice(preferrably a day old)
Curry Powder - 2 tsps
Pepper - To taste
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Brown Sugar - 2 tsps
Cooking Oil - 2 tsps
Roasted Cashews - 10

For the paste

Mix Soy Sauce, Curry Powder, Turmeric and Brown Sugar.


1. Heat 2 tsps of oil (I used Olive Oil) in a wok and saute Onions and Garlic till it becomes pale. 
2. Saute vegetables in it for a min or 2. Add the Paste and saute for 3-4 mins in med- high heat.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the cooked rice. 
4. Mix well and taste to correct salt, pepper or soy sauce as per taste. 
5. Add 1 tsp water if needed. I did not add any.
6. Add scrambled egg if needed. I did not add any. 
7. Add the Cashews. Give it a mix and switch off.

Add any leftover cooked meat if needed before step 4. If the rice looks to clumpy use little in hands to gently separate the grains before adding it into the wok. Add other colored bell peppers or any thai vegetables if needed. 

This is a very easy recipe and can be done quickly too. Let me know how it works out for you!

Short or Tall?

I usually pick Lily by about 3 from school and she just wishes to play around. I make her do 1 or 2 activities a day and use what we learn to play something. That way she is more enthusiastic in learning.

This is what we are doing today. I try to make a worksheet by myself mostly. Or use store bought worksheets.

Worksheet March 19 2013

We had fun pointing who of us - me, my husband or her - were shorter or taller.

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog! A little about me ... and my preschool daughter... I am Deepti. I love cooking(esp baking), reading books, computers, crafting and gardening. Being a stay-at-home mom, I'd like to try dishes that my little one seems to like. I like exploring new software! And LOVE all kinds of crafts.. though I don't get time I try to make time now and then.. My little one is in preschool .. Lily loves to play play and play.. So I try to add a little learning as she has fun!
