Pineapple Fried Rice {Khao Pad Sapparot}

We have a great cookbook to review today from a blogger I have worked with for years. I am excited to share with you Rice. Noodles. Yum. by Abigail Raines from Manila Spoon. From the cookbook I wanted to share this incredible Pineapple Fried Rice {Khao Pad Sapparot} recipe.

We love making rice dishes like our own pineapple and coconut rice or Mexican rice rice, two of our most popular rice dishes. Rice is good on its own, but taking it to the next level is always very satisfying for us.

This pineapple fried rice is eaten as a meal, you really don't need much else, but maybe a simple vegetable stir fry to go with it. Although it appears to be gourmet, it really is an easy recipe to make. It is no more difficult than any other fried rice recipe.

There is a ton of delicious ingredients in this recipe, but it is easily combined. Shrimp, raisins, pineapple, cashews, and tomatoes pair perfectly with good jasmine rice or basmati rice.

The flavors are formed one after the other with garlic, onion, curry powder, fish sauce, oyster sauce, salt and sugar.

Another nice touch of this recipe is to use a freshly hollowed out pineapple to serve. This makes him a true showtopper.

Rice. Noodles. Mmm Cookbook

Yum Cookbook Rice Noodles

In Abigail's debut cookbook Rice. Noodles. MmmYou will find a wide variety of the best dishes made around rice and noodles. With 75 recipes to explore all tastes of Southeast Asian dishes, you'll feel like you've traveled and explored the cuisines of the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnamese and beyond.

"While millions of Southeast Asians eat rice and noodles daily every day, there is less exposure to these foods on a global scale," Abigail writes in the introduction. "While there are some well-known rice and noodle dishes, they barely scratch the surface and there is much more to discover beyond pad thai, pho and nasi goreng."

The cookbook is divided into eight chapters:

  1. ‘N’ Easy Rice
  2. Delicious noodle dishes
  3. Delicious meats
  4. Satisfactory Soups
  5. Street food favorites
  6. The best ways to start a day
  7. Tease My Tastebuds (Salads and Nibbles)
  8. Satisfy your sweet cravings

There are great recipes to try such as Goi Cuon (Fresh Spring Rolls), Khao Soy Gai (Curry Noodle Soup), Serabi (Indonesian Coconut Pancakes), Mee Kati (Coconut Rice Noodles), and Carioca (Balls of fried rice with coconut caramel sauce).

This only mentions some of the many delicious recipes to choose from. All recipes also come with full color images, which I love.

How to make pineapple fried rice

First we fry large juicy prawns and then add them again to the fried rice. This adds a perfect touch and makes the dish more like a meal than a garnish.

It should start with leftover rice or rice that has been refrigerated or chilled. It is better to sit at night.

Garlic and onion are fried in a large skillet or wok. Then the curry is added until fragrant. Then add the rice and mix well with the curry mixture. Then followed by that are raisins, pineapple, cashews and tomatoes.

Finally, the rice is seasoned with the fish sauce, the oyster sauce and the sugar and season with salt to taste. After that, the shrimp are added again and a garnish of green onion to finish.

You can serve the rice in a bowl or hollowed out pineapple, depending on what you prefer.

Pineapple fried rice is gluten-free?

As long as its ingredients like fish sauce, oyster sauce etc. are gluten free, this pineapple fried rice recipe should be gluten free.

However, one ingredient you may want to look closely at in the ingredient list is soy sauce. That is usually the big culprit of gluten in Asian dishes.

Eliminating shrimp, fish sauce, and oyster sauce, this dish can easily be vegetarian and vegan.

This is an awesome dish to make, just imagine bringing it to the table and seeing what your family or friends look like!

Preparation time 15 minutes Time to cook 20 minutes Total time 35 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of cooking oil of choice
  • 12 oz (340 g) prawns or shrimp, peeled and deveined but with tail intact
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) curry powder, or more to taste
  • 4 cups (645 g) cooked long-grain white rice such as jasmine or basmati rice, cold or cold
  • 1 cup (150 g) raisins
  • 1 cup (200 g) pineapple chunks (see Note)
  • ½ cup (75 g) cashews
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced ​​and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of oyster sauce
  • ½ tablespoon (8 g) of sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 stems or about 2 tablespoons (12 g) green onion, thinly sliced
  • Whole pineapple, to serve (optional)


  1. In a wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the prawns and fry them for 3 or 4 minutes or until they are fully cooked. Prawns are made when their meat is completely opaque and bright pink. Take the prawns out, transfer them to a plate and set them aside.
  2. Set the heat to medium-low. Add garlic and onion to skillet and cook for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add curry powder and cook briefly, stirring constantly, until fragrant.
  3. Add cooked rice to skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Stroke the rice grains with a spatula, then fold the rice. Perform these two steps several times until the rice grains have separated and the rice is completely covered in the curry powder. Add the raisins, pineapple, cashews, and tomatoes and mix well. Return half of the cooked shrimp to the wok. Season the mixture with the fish sauce, the oyster sauce and the sugar. Stir to mix well. Test and adjust seasoning with salt, if necessary.
  4. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with the remaining prawns and green onions. You can also serve this inside a hollowed out fresh pineapple if you like.


To serve this dish inside a pineapple, cut a pineapple in half lengthwise. Pass a knife around the edges leaving at least ½ inch (13 mm) from the edge. Then cut the pineapple meat three to four times and once in the middle. Scoop out the pineapple chunks and drain the remaining juice. Smooth the bottom surface of the bowl. Cut the pineapple you cut into pieces and use it to make the fried rice. Place the fried rice inside the sliced ​​pineapple just before serving.
