Rice with Curried Vegetables

When I tasted it at a local eatery in Tobago, I was hooked, that I had to ask for the recipe and the cook, was not too eager, but after some persuasion, she was ever so nice to give me the recipe.


2 tsp olive oil
150g red bell pepper, diced
80g spring onions, sliced
2 tbsp Jamaican curry powder
450g long-grain rice, washed
2 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
150g pineapple chunks (fresh or tinned, drained)


Bring a pan of lightly-salted water to a boil then add the rice and cook for about 20 minutes, or until tender. When the rice is almost ready add the oil to a pan and use to fry the spring onions and bell peppers for about 3 minutes. Add the curry powder and fry for 30 seconds then add the pineapple and fry for 2 minutes more.  Drain the rice, place in a bowl then stir in the lime juice, salt and the vegetable mix. Serve hot.
