Pineapple Tofu Curry Fried Rice
I always keep finding ways to flavor rice. Curry and rice is one of my all time favorite. Aromatic curry and few basic spices gives wonderful flavor to fried rice. I have used pineapple and raisins for sweetness, cashew nuts for some nutty texture, (you can also use peanuts or pistachios if you prefer).

Lemon Rice are my favorite rice at my home but since I prepared curried fried rice; everyone choose to eat Curried Fried Rice if I gave them option :)

I have listed this recipe in Vegetarian Section though I have used Eggs because eggs are totally optional. These fried rice taste amazing even without eggs. So feel free to replace any veggies or eggs or tofu per your liking and enjoy a flavorful plate of rice.

    Additional Notes
    Boiling water with extra water and then draining excess water from rice reduces starch contents in rice which is very good for health.
  • 2. In a wok or deep heavy bottom pan, add 1 tbsp oil; when it starts to smoke, add tofu and fry till crisp from all sides. Remove tofu from pan. Now add remaining 2 tbsp.oil, let it smoke and then add eggs stirring quickly. Add cashews and fry till crisp. Add onion, tomatoes & carrots (if using), peas, raisins and sauté for 2 minutes. Now add red chili paste, curry powder, salt and fry for 30 seconds.
