If I ever won a million dollars I would have two homes and one would be in tropical style. To beat the winter blues here is an easy tropical recipe to cheer you up.
4 cups cold cooked rice
2 Tbsp. Peanut or vegetable oil
¼ cup cashew pieces
½ cup chopped onions
¼ cup golden raisins
1 Egg, beaten
½ cup pineapple tidbits
¼ cup chopped scallions, divided
2 Tbsp. fish sauce
1 tsp. sugar
Cilantro for garnish (optional)
Use your fingers to crumble up the cold rice and break up any clumps.
Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
Once hot, add the cashews, onions, and raisins. Let cook for 1 minute.
Add the beaten egg and cook for 1 minute while stirring to scramble the egg.
Add the pineapple pieces, followed by half of the chopped scallions. Add the rice, fish sauce, and sugar, and cook, stirring often, for 3 to 4 minutes or until the rice is warm.
Mound the rice on a serving platter and garnish with the leftover scallions (and cilantro if desired).
