Pineapple Fried rice recipe with step by step pictures – a vegetarian rice recipe with fresh pineapple chunks and red capsicum. It is very easy to make if the rice is already available in hand.

Both Freshly cooked, cooled rice and any leftover rice work out well for this recipe. Fresh pineapple and red capsicum gives a very appealing color for this rice which looks mouthwatering and tempts anyone to try.

There are many variations in preparing this fried rice but I follow this vegetarian method all the time as it suits my family anytime.
