Philippine Fried Rice (Sinangag) Recipe

Rice is the staple for Filipinos and so, no meal is complete without it. Here, freshly cooked rice is served with sausages and fried fish to create a classic Filipino breakfast. The sausages and dried fish are also sold in Asian specialty stores.

Ingredients :

    • 4 tablespoons oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 4 shallots, diced
    • 4 cups (about 800 g) cold cooked rice (refrigerated leftover rice) lightly flaked with ½ cup (125 ml) water
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Method :

Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and stir-fry the garlic until golden brown. Add the shallots, rice, soy sauce, salt and pepper, and stir-fry for 10 minutes, turning the rice frequently to ensure even cooking and to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan. Serve hot with the Philippine Pork Sausages and Crispy Fried Fish (see recipes below).
