Pineapple Rice

I love pineapple rice. Either this or olive rice is what I order when I visit Thai restaurants. But when you order and if you are vegetarian make sure they do the dishes without fish sauce. I normally ask them when I order. I tried this rice couple of time in the past. Last time when I did it was raining so couldn't take photo. It is so simple and flavourful rice. It is perfect for weekend lunch. 

Pineapple chunk - 1 Cup
Cooked rice - 3 cups  (you can use left over rice)
Onion - 1 thinly sliced
Garlic - 7-8 pods (finely chopped)
Green Chillies - 2 ( slit into 2)
Peas - 1/2 cup
Carrot - 1/2 cup (cut into small piece)
Raisin - 2 tablespoons ( I didn't use as my kids doesn't like it)
Soya sauce - 1.5 tablespoon
Spring Onion - 1/4 cup (chopped into 1/2 inch pieces)
Coriander leaves / Cliantro - 1 tablespoon (finely chopped)
