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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak the Thai fragrant rice for 20 minutes, then rinse in several changes of water.
  2. Drain, then boil in salted water for 10-20 minutes until tender.
  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.
  7. If the rice grains stick together on cooling, simply stir them with a metal spoon. This dish can be served warm or at room temperature and is a good accompaniment to grilled or barbecued meats and fish.

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!

We absolutely loved this rice. So much flavor with all the different ingredients. I used red pepper flakes for the red chile and added more pineapple. I only made half a recipe and had very little left. Loved it. Served with Recipe #108105.
