How to Make Fried Rice?
The staple of Filipino food is rice. The left over rice is usually recooked to make“Sinangag” or fried rice. This also comes in several combinations like chicken fried rice, shrimp fried rice, pork fried rice, pineapple fried rice and a lot more fried rice version. But the only simple and special thing for me is the Java rice with egg which I find it really easy to make and no hassles — the only difference is that in Java rice butter is usedinstead of regular oil.
I remember my younger sister used to prepare this meal for us before 7:00 in the morning and right before we actually leave the house for school. But now, instead of Java rice let’s make the very simple version of fried rice which is fried rice with egg.
5 Cups of cooked long grain rice
1 Small onion diced
2 Eggs scrambled and sliced into small pieces
½ Tsp. Ground black pepper
½ Tsp. MSG optional
½ Tsp. Salt
2 Tbs. Corn oil
8 Stalks of green onions
2 cubes of garlic
Prepare the rice by breaking it apart completely before you begin. In a large pan heat oil over medium high heat and. Next fry the garlic and onion then add the rice and mix it for about one minute. Keep mixing for 3 minutes. Add the eggs, and season it with vetsin, salt, and black pepper. Keep mixing for another 5 minutes, and then add the green onions stirring for another 2 minutes and you’re done.
Don’t use a rice that is very sticky or you will have a hard time incorporating all the ingredients. The rice will stick together rather than break apart. Letting the rice sit overnight in the fridge will help you to break the rice apart a lot easier or at least let it totally cool off before cooking it.
