Thanks to the internet and my curiosity for making this dish come to life in my mouth. Yumm. I am such a foodie. The actual name for this dish ” Pineapple fried rice” but just realize I could totally high-jack the name “Hawaiian” to the mix.

“For those who have no clue what am all about, “Hawaiian” – is a combination of ham, and pineapple to any mixed ingredients. The name is so common especially in Pizza, but like I always mention, “You’ve got to add some kick into your cooking, no matter how simple it is.”

Ingredients -You will require:

1 full fresh pineapple {can also used canned pineapples}

– 1/2 cup of ham {chop them into cubes

– 1 cup of white rice {can use brown rice}

– 2 carrots {can dice or crate}

– 2 red onions

– 2 tomatoes

– 2 cloves of garlic

-1 cup of fresh peas

– soy sauce

How to prepare:

1. Boil the rice and the peas separately.

2. As the two boil, chop up the carrots -tomatoes, crate the garlic, dice the onions,  and place them separately.

3. Slice the pineapple into halves, 1 half -peal the skin off and dice the pineapple into cubes. The other half, scoop off all the juicy flesh out, place it on a different dish – so as to be left with the skeleton of the pineapple.

4. Once the peas and rice have cooked, using a different pot, fry in onions, garlic, tomatoes and carrots together until golden brown, add in the rice and peas together. Stir.

5. Add in the soy sauce over the mixture of fried rice and peas. Stir.

A chilled glass of “4 cousins white wine” should be the best drink to take down the food.

Enjoy.

    I’m all about complete meals and healthy eating. So what would complement this dish? Steak?? Chicken? And what veggies?

      Hi Ciku,
      I wouldn’t go for another meat, since there is ham already, but probably more on the veges. Definitely french beans coz they will add crunch to the meal.
