Sinangag -Filipino Garlic Fried Rice

I love rice and can have it any/ all time of the day to be honest.But I found that its been a long time since I posted a rice recipe. I have been trying out several rice dishes but never got to post them though.So today I thought I will post a family favourite -Sinangag, which is Filipino version of the fried rice that is a staple of all South East Asian cuisines. And for a perfect version I didnot have to search more as I had already bookmarked dear DK's Sinangag. I served it with simple veggies in hot garlic sauce to make it more garlicky. You can go for your choice of  accompaniment though.

Cooked /leftover medium/long grain rice :2 cups 
Garlic: 4+ whole peeled cloves
Garlic Minced :2-3 tbsp
Scallions/Spring onion: 2+ sliced thinly, white and green separate.
Salt & Pepper: as per taste

Butter/Oil: 1tbsp 

Heat butter/oil or the combo in a deep pan and add whole peeled garlic cloves in it. Roast them until brown and then remove them and keep aside. This is optional step which I had liked and followed from the original recipe source.

To the same pan and in the remaining oil, add remaining ingredients of scallion whites,minced garlic and saute until cooked and a nice aroma emanates. Then toss in the rice and give it a quick stir. Add fresh grated pepper and salt.

Top with scallion greens and whole roasted garlic cloves and serve warm with a side dish of your choice.

Simple, easy to make and perfect. As per wiki, you can add even veggies and meat, but usually preferred with just garlic,salt and pepper. Also its a breakfast dish in Philippines. Who would have thought of having a fried rice for breakfast other than rice lovers like me!?. Anyways go and make it. It can definitely be done under 30 minutes including cooking time for rice.
