Directions See How It's Made
- Halve the pineapples, and cut out the flesh to leave four shells (don't remove the tail, it looks pretty on the plate).
- Cut the pineapple flesh that you have removed into bite-sized chunks.
- You need about two cups for this recipe.
- Use the rest for something else.
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the chile, celery, garlic and onion over high heat for two minutes, then stir in the coriander and cumin and mushrooms.
- Add the pineapple pieces and the cooked rice, stir and toss well.
- Add the soy, sugar, salt and cashew nuts.
- Heat through while tossing, don't stir, you don't want mush.
- Spoon the mixture into the pineapple shells and sprinkle with chopped coriander leaves and spring onions.
