Preparation Guide

 Place a large kadai over medium-high heat. Once hot, add one teaspoon oil, pineapple and red pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until the liquid evaporates and the pineapple is caramelized on the edges, about 3-5 minutes. Add the green onion and garlic. Cook until fragrant while stirring constantly for 30 seconds.
 Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Pour in the cashews and cook until fragrant, stirring constantly for 30 seconds. Add the rice and stir to combine.
 Cook until the rice is hot, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes.
 Add the soy sauce and chilli garlic sauce, to taste. Squeeze the juice of ½ lime and stir well. Season with salt and set aside.
 Slice the remaining ½ lime into 4 wedges. Transfer the stir-fry to individual serving bowls and garnish each bowl with a lime wedge and a light sprinkle of coriander.
