The Thai Pineapple Rice is nothing short of an adventure for your taste buds. As they travel into each mouthful, your taste buds will experience a burst of flavours – the sweet and sour pineapple, spicy curry paste, soothing coconut milk, juicy raisins, and more, and more. While the authentic preparation of this dish does require a little effort in buying a whole pineapple and cutting it appropriately, the presentation and outcome completely justify the time spent.
- Cut the pineapple into half lengthwise, keeping the leaves on. Scoop out the pineapple from the center portion using a sharp knife.
- Chop the scooped pineapple into cubes you will get approx. 1½ cups of chopped pineapple. Keep aside.
- Heat the butter in a deep non-stick kadhai, add the onions and green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
- Add the prepared yellow curry paste, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the chopped pineapple, coconut milk, raisins, cashewnuts, cooked rice, sugar and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Divide the rice into 2 equal portions and fill each portion of the rice into the scooped out pineapple halve.
- Serve immediately garnished with coriander.
