for 2 servings

  • 1 pineapple
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 chicken breast, diced
  • ½ kg prawn (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups basmati rice
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • Mixed bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup green beans
  • Pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste


  1. Soak rice for 5 mins in hot water and rinse until clear. This would remove excess starch, if you desire.
  2. Use a sharp knife to carefully cut the pineapple in half lengthways. Then, cut around the edge of the pineapple. Do not cut through the skin.
  3. Scoop out the pineapple core with a spoon, and slice into cubes. Set both the pineapple cubes and skin aside.
  4. Boil rice with little salt for about 8 minutes. Drain water and set aside.
  5. Heat 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in in a large wok over a medium heat. Stir fry the chicken and prawns with thyme in a hot wok. Fry until both are just cooked. Remove chicken and prawns from the wok and set aside.
  6. Heat 4 tablespoons oil in the wok.
  7. Add the garlic and onion, and stir until fragrant.
  8. Add in the bell pepper, sprig onion, carrot, green beans, ginger, turmeric, salt, cayenne and season. Stir fry for about 5 minutes.
  9. Add the cooked rice, diced pineapples, chicken and prawns. Add in the soy sauce and stir until everything is well mixed together. Allow to simmer 3-5minutes.
  10. Serve in the empty pineapple halves. Topped with skewered prawns, if desired.
  11. Enjoy!
