Sinangag (fried rice)

Fried rice in the Philippines is usually served during breakfast made out of leftover rice of last night’s dinner. Obviously, this dish is of Chinese origin, which speaks of their presence in the country even prior to the arrival of the Spaniards. This can vary from one region to another.

English: fried rice
Tagalog: sinangag 
Hiligaynon (Ilonggo): kalokalo nga kan-on
Ilokano: kinirog
Cebuano: sinangag nga kan-on 
Tausug: guiling kawnon

This is my version of Sinangag.

Sinangag with malunggay (moringa)


2 cups of steamed rice or leftover rice
1/2 cup of malunggay
minced garlic
minced onion
1 egg
pinch of salt to taste
soy sauce 

Scramble the egg, fry and finely slice. Set aside. Saute garlic until light brown. Add onion (don't burn it). Add rice and soy sauce, mix.  Add malunggay, mix until it turns into bright green. Add the egg and mix well.

Fried fingerling potatoes cut into halves can be a good side dish.
