Sweet Pineapple Yellow Rice

Recipe by lemoncurd

This recipe is sweet and tangy. You just can't get enough off it, both kids and adults go wild. It was given to me by a South African friend. Add enough turmeric to give a soft yellow colour.

I was kind of lazy making this. I tossed everything in a rice cooker.. and was kind of weary mid way through but omg.. it was excellent! Thanks Lemoncurd for posting!
