Filipino Garlic Fried Rice (Sinangag)

Prep 15 min
Total 1 hour
Serves 4



2 cups
jasmine rice
3 tbsp
garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp
salt, divided
3 tbsp
minced garlic, (about 1 head)
1 tbsp
green onion, thinly sliced (optional)


1. Cook rice following package directions. Scrape onto a baking sheet to cool quickly. Refrigerate at least 30 min before frying, or use about 7 cups day-old rice.

2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add oil and sliced garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is lightly golden, about 2 min. Remove garlic chips to a paper-towel-lined plate, leaving oil in pan. Season with 1⁄8 tsp salt and set aside.

3. In same pan, cook minced garlic, stirring constantly until fragrant and starting to brown, about 1 min. Add rice and water. Break up any clumps of rice, stirring mixture to distribute garlic evenly. Season with remaining salt. Cook until rice has been heated through, about 3 min. Garnish with garlic chips and green onions.
