Fried rice is a tasty and delicious dish using cooked rice with a variety of ingredients like vegetables, meat, seafood and eggs.  It is easy to make and absolutely delicious and can be served as lunch or dinner.
This Thai version fried rice is easy to prepare and acceptable with many people.  A little spicy with the chilli flakes and extra heat comes from the small chillies.  The pineapples are soft and sweet, blends well with the savoury taste of fish sauce.

Overall, it is appetisingly good and delicious especially aromatic with the use of sesame seed oil and toasted belacan.

Hi Jasline, I used local pineapple to fry the rice. It was so sweet, juicy and mellows the spicy chilli taste. Agree with you that it is delicious.

Hi Phong Hong, you are right, the spicier the better. I would have added more chilli flakes if the fried rice is only for myself. The young girl in my house is 'scary' over chilli, so I have to add more chopped chilli padi to my plate.
