  • 1 cup - Basmati/raw/boiled Rice
  • 1 cup - pineapple, chopped (1 x 1.5 cm) (you might need 3 round slices for 1 cup - peel the skin and remove the thorns)
  • 1.5 tbsp - Onion, chopped or 1/4 of a small Onion
  • 5 - Green chillies
  • 1/2 tsp - ginger, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp - oil
  • Mustard seeds, a pinch
  • Cumin, a pinch
  • Asafoetida/hing, a pinch
  • Turmeric powder, 3 pinches
  • 4 - Curry leaves
  • How to Make Pineapple rice:

    1. Boil the rice in a rice cooker/pressure cooker until it is 90% done (usually 2 or 3 whistles in a pressure cooker). You will need 8-10 cups of water to cook the rice.
    2. Drain the water using a strainer/sieve/conventional method.
    3. In a pan, add oil.
    4. When it is hot, add mustard seeds and let them splutter.
    5. Add cumin seeds, hing, curry leaves, green chillies and turmeric powder and saute for a few seconds.
    6. Add chopped onions and saute for 2 minutes on a medium flame.
    7. Add pineapple, 1 tbsp of water and cook for 5 minutes on a low flame.
    8. Crush the pineapple slightly as you cook.
    9. Add at least 2 cups of boiled rice and mix it with sauce (just like how you make lemon rice or puliyogare).
    10. Let it stay for a while and then serve.
    11. This allows the rice to absorb the flavour of pineapple.
