Thai Pineapple Fried Rice (Khao Pad Sapparot)

By Pavani @napavani
Blogging Marathon#64: Week 4/ Day 2 Theme: Mega BM Bookmarked Recipes  Dish: Pineapple Fried Rice from Mireille  For Day 2 of bookmarked dishes I have a sweet, sour and spicy Thai Pineapple fried rice from Mir's blog. I have seen pineapple fried rice recipes on any food blogs but I wasn't sure how the sweetness of the pineapple would taste in a savory rice dish. So never tried to make it at home before.
Khao Pad Sapparot But when I saw Mir's dish, I wanted to give it a try. I had all the ingredients on hand and my husband was traveling so I took a chance and made it for myself. I have to say I really liked this dish. The sweetness from the pineapple is actually complemented by the spicy curry powder and the saltiness of the soy sauce.
Khao Pad Sapparot If you have leftover rice, then it takes just a few minutes to put this dish together. Mir used ham and shrimp in her recipe, which I subbed with tofu and mixed vegetables to make this is a vegetarian and filling dish. Tofu absorbs all the flavors and tasted amazing in this dish.
