Laing Fried Rice is made from laing and leftover white rice. Laing is a popular Filipino dish that originated from the province of Bicol. This is a rich and spicy dish with taro leaves and coconut milk and/or cream as its main ingredients. Depending on the recipe, pork and shrimp with lots of spicy red chili can be added.
You can immediately tell that I am a fan of fried rice (like shrimp fried rice) and laing. In fact, I have tried many different recipes. The simplest recipe that I tried turned out to be my favorite. It was simple, rich, delicious, and had a soft consistency. It was plainly delish!
The link to the laing recipe that I am talking about can be found in the ingredients section of the recipe below. You can make laing using the provided details and save some later to make laing fried rice.
Note that I added toasted anchovies in this recipe. I like the taste of anchovies and I like it best when crispy. I simply toasted it in an electric oven toaster. You can also cook it in a pan. Simply add a teaspoon of oil in a small pan and then heat it. Add the anchovies and cook it for a minute while constantly turning it over. It will be best to use a spatula when doing this.
