First things first, this is a (slightly adapted) reblog from an excellent site called Trials in Food which you can check out here:
Great photos and it is a really nicely written blog about the journey through food!
I spotted this recipe a few weeks ago and really liked the look of it so on the next supermarket visit (where I remembered) I bought the pineapple in preparation.
I used a slightly different combination of ingredients owing to what I had in the fridge. I think with this kind of recipe, it is great for using a mixture of what you might already have and many combinations could work out well! For the full list of ingredients see the bottom of the post.
I started by boiling some rice and then while that was cooking, fried the garlic, chilli flakes and onion for a couple of minutes and then added the pepper, carrots, peas and mangetout and cooked for a further 5 mins over a medium heat.
I then added the prawns, beaten egg and ham and cooked for a further 2 mins before adding the pineapple, cooked rice, curry powder, soy sauce and mixing all together. The final steps were to add the cashew nuts and the raisins and giving a final mix before plating up and placing the coriander over the served dish.
The taste is great! Many different flavours and textures and it looks really good too! Next time I have to serve it in the pineapple shell for authenticity!
Thanks again to Trials In Food for the inspiration!
