I had this once and have been trying to find a good recipe eversince. Found this one in a cookbook and would love to try it sometime when I'm not so busy anymore.

Personally I thought this tasted very good, but I would have preferred it less wet (I was expecting fluffier rice -- I understand that that may not be the intended result). I also added a bit of sugar. That said, my DH loved it, so 5 stars!

  3. Drain and set aside.
  4. Whisk together the lime juice, sesame oil, chilli, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, honey, pineapple juice and wine vinegar in a large bowl.
  5. Stir in the rice.
  6. Add the spring onions, pineapple rings, sprouted lentils or bean sprouts, red pepper, celery, cashew nuts and the toasted sesame seeds and mix well.
