“Sinangag” means “Garlic fried rice” which happens to be a popular Filipino breakfast that is very simple to make and requires very few ingredients. It is also known as “Poor Man’s Fried Rice” or “Filipino Garlic Fried Rice”. It is usually served with fried eggs and fish which will make a wholesome nutritious meal. As the basic Sinangag recipe is very simple, one can always adapt it to suit one’s palate. I tried the basic version a few days ago and though it tasted really good, the family, more used to spicy food found it a wee bit bland. So made a few changes and the result was something that’s too good. Give it a try and I’m sure this garlic fried rice will become your go to comfort food especially on a cold rainy day.
Sinangag is basically made using left over rice, so if you have excess rice left over after cooking for a crowd, you can always make this to have a hearty meal. I packed this rice along with the Baby Potato Sambal for the lunch box to school and according to both the kids, all the other kids went ga ga over it.
We, the Avant Garde Cookies, are cooking with the recipe name starting with letter “G” and this recipe seemed an apt choice for this week’s theme.
