Thai Pineapple Fried Rice
Want to add some tropical flavour to your fried rice? There’s nothing like the blend of tang and sweetness in Thai Pineapple Fried Rice! You’ll want to come back for another serving or two, or three! What makes this dish special? It incorporates fresh pineapple, dried raisins, and roasted cashew nuts along with the more traditional and expected elements like soy sauce, prawns, shallots, chicken, and, of course, rice. The trick to making this meal even more amazing is to use fresh pineapples and serve up the fried rice in beautiful bowls made from the outer rind of the halved pineapples. It’s a dish that pleases the eye as well as the palate!

Yang Zhou Fried Rice
Yangzhou Fried Rice – A Singapore Catering Favourite
The traditional Chinese fried rice, also called Yang Zhou fried rice, is a staple of most Chinese restaurants. The cook whisks out a bowl of day-old white rice and stir-fries it with some chopped green onions, diced chicken, diced carrots, and peas. Bits of egg, bamboo shoots, and corn often find their way into the dish as well. Although these are the primary ingredients, the beauty of Yang Zhou fried rice is its versatility. You can add almost anything you have on hand that you believe would taste good in the fried rice. In China’s Yangzhou province, this style of rice often comes to your table accompanied by “thousand fish soup.”
Malay Fried Rice
Are you interested in doing fried rice Malay-style? It’s all in the add-ons, whether they are the familiar eggs, chicken, and prawns or the slightly more exotic pickles, salted dried fish, sausages, and crackers that Malaysian cooks like to include. Known as Nasi Goreng, this style of fried rice includes ample doses of sweet soy sauce, which give it a stronger flavour than the mild Chinese fried rice. Sometimes, Malay fried rice comes with crunchy fried onions or fried shallots for a more interesting combination of textures. You may even find a hawker stall or a catering service in Singapore that serves up fine Nasi Goreng with crab and calamari. If you like your food spicy, you’ll enjoy the Indonesian and Malaysian habit of serving fried rice with sambal or chilli sauce.
Chicken Ham Fried Rice
Another delicious variation is Chicken Ham Fried Rice, which packs extra protein along with the helping of carbs from the rice. You can use leftover chopped ham, chicken, tofu, and other meats along with the leftover rice. Grab some oyster sauce or sweet soy sauce, plus salt, white pepper powder, garlic, and onions. A few eggs, chopped carrots, and some oil, and you’re ready to go. It takes about 20 minutes to whip up good fried rice in your wok, and you’ll have plenty to enjoy for that meal and the next.
