My husband often ordered pineapple fried rice at Thai restaurants, so I tweaked recipes until I got to this version. I like to use jasmine rice. The garnish of green onions and chopped peanuts really complete the dish. —Bonnie Brien, Pacific Grove, California

"This was great! I halved the recipe for the two of us, except for using the full amount of the soy-curry-sugar mixture. I microwaved the jasmine rice and added a bit of hot chili sesame oil to it in place of butter. We will be having this dish again before very long."
