  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 30 grams butter
  • 3 shallots peeled and minced
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • 1 heaped tsp shrimp paste
  • 100 grams boneless chicken breast cut to bite-sized pieces; marinate with 1/2 tsp sesame oil and 1/4 tsp light soy sauce
  • 6 prawns peeled diced
  • 350 grams cooked long grain rice refrigerated overnight
  • 100 grams diced pineapple flesh may use fresh or canned pineapples
  • 2 tbsp roasted cashew nuts
  • 2 tbsp dried raisins
  • pork or chicken floss
  • coriander for garnishing

Sauce (A)

(Mix well in a small, stain-proof bowl)

  • 1 tsp tumeric powder
  • 1 tbsp pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp ikan bilis or chicken seasoning powder


  1. Heat oil and butter in wok, stir fry shallot and garlic for about 30 seconds or until the shallots start to soften.
  2. Add shrimp paste, stir fry for about 1 minute until you smell the pungent aroma.
  3. Add chicken and stir fry until they just turn opaque. Add prawns, stir fry until semi-cooked.
  4. Add rice and pour the sauce (A) over. Stir fry until the rice grains are dry and evenly-coated in the sauce.
  5. Add pineapple, cashew nuts, raisins and stir fry for another minute or two. Ladle pineapple rice to serving bowl and garnish with meat floss and coriander.

Noob Cook Tips:

  1. For best results when cooking fried rice, use cooked rice that has been refrigerated overnight. If you do not like the idea of overnight rice , you can also use freshly cooked rice which has been refrigerated for at least 2 hours in the fridge. Refrigerating the rice keeps the grains dry so that they won’t stick to each other during stir frying. Alternatively, ‘tabao’ (takeaway) extra rice the day before, for making fried rice the next day.
  2. Tumeric is permanently staining on clothes, certain materials (such as plastic bowls) and surfaces. Use non-staining crockery and cookware. I use an old wok and spatula specifically for cooking anything with tumeric in it.
