Used fresh pineapple which was lovely. The rice was delicious but I think I should have cooked it slightly less because it was a bit sticky.

I made this to go with the sticky lime chicken recipe on GF. I think the rice was the best part of the meal, absolutely delicious. I didn't have mild curry powder so made my my own with ground spices (ginger, coriander, cumin, black onion seeds, chilli powder - all 1/4 teaspoon and then 1.5 teaspoons of Garam Masala). Will definitely be making again.

The family really loved this rice. Well worth trying for a change.
