At last i am here with my AFAM for pineapple. I ever thought i could make it this time. This is my very first entry for the AFAM. Juicy pineapples who doesn’t love them. This yellow tropical fuit some say it signifies new begining, a great source of vitamn C. This is one fruit i love , like anything from this gojju, raita and now this is also on the list pineapple fried rice.
Everytime i went out to eat with my colleagues being a vegetarian i was always left with little choice. Once during our regular seminars we had to lunch in a Thai restuarant, hmm looking at the menu i scrolled a few pages then i was only left with the dessert which very inviting. My colleagues suggested collegues and helped me to instruct the waiter to prepare vegetarian pineapple fried rice which was had a very nice aroma with the fried onions, from that day onwards i just loved this fried rice. Maheswari from Beyond the Usual is hosting this event.
