- In the Philippines, rice is king.....we have it in the morning, lunchtime, dinner and yes, even for snacks... and don't rule it out as dessert too! Sometimes, we cook too much of it and then there are left-overs. But never fear.....sinangag is here. It's the Tagalog term for "fried rice." So next time you wonder what to do with left-over rice, try this recipe and you'll know how.
- The ingredients here can be increased or decreased depending on how much rice you have left, so feel free to adjust it
- Day old Left-over Rice, cold
- 2 Tablespoons, Olive oil (light)
- A few crushed Garlic (3-5)
- 1-2 Tablespoons, Soy sauce, or to taste
- Dash of salt, or to taste
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- Frozen Peas and Corn, a handful
- Heat about a 1-2 Tablespoons oil in a large frying pan or wok.
- Saute the garlic until aromatic.
- Add the cold rice and stir to break the grains apart.
- Cook until warmed up. Season with a little salt.
- Add the soy sauce and mix with the rice until most of the grains are coated.
- You may either scramble the eggs in another pan and just add it later after it's been cooked. But if you have a big enough wok or wide enough pan, create a well/space in the middle of it by pushing the rice to the side.
- Spray a little oil in the middle and then pour the beaten egg.
- Let it set. When the eggs have set enough, flip it over then begin to mix it with the rice, breaking it up as you do so.
- Add the frozen peas and corn and continue to stir until the veggies are cooked about 2-3 mins.
- Serve warm with your viand. Easy-peasy delicious!
