Pineapple Fried Brown Rice

I love pineapple eaten fresh or in fried rice or in curries. I bought one the other day and being lazy to cook anything elaborate, I went for something easy and fried rice is such a versatile one dish meal. You throw in anything you want and yet it will turn out delicious. And lately we have changed to eating brown rice and I was curious to know how brown rice will taste like when fried with other ingredients. I fried it with pineapples cubes and it was good for a simple meal :)) the tangy pineapple adds flavor to the fried rice Mmmmm simple to prepare and good for people who are laazzzy busy to cook or for those who have no time to cook becoz they have to blog ! LOL!

food taste better when you dress it! :)

a very versatile rice dish....throw in anything or left-overs from dinner
it will still taste good :)

dash some cajun and paprika into the fried rice...makes it more flavorful

enjoy every burst of flavor in each and every mouthful..mmmm yummy!
