  • Watch the video above if you’d like to make pineapple boats. It has detailed instructions.
  • Heat oil in a wok and add minced garlic. Keep the flame on high. Allow the garlic to slightly brown. Add chopped ginger, onion, celery and chillies. Stir fry till onions start to gain colour.
  • Add chopped carrot and bell pepper, saute for 2 minutes. Add peas, corn and pineapple and stir fry for 2-3 minutes until peas and corn are cooked.
  • Add cumin, chilli powder, turmeric, coriander powder and soy sauce. Season with salt and white pepper. Mix it well so that it coats the vegetables.
  • Reduce flame to low and add the cooked rice. Toss and mix to combine all the ingredients well. Adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve hot and enjoy



  1. Pineapple: If using canned pineapple, drain really well, dice and use. The nutritional values above are based on fresh pineapple and they would change if using canned
  2. Rice: Fried rice made at home is best when you use day old rice that was in the refrigerator. If using fresh rice, spread it out on a baking sheet and let it air out under the fan for an hour or in the refrigerator
