Bagoong Rice

Have some leftover rice? Why not put a little bit spice and flavor?

People have different ways to cook this rice dish which is said to be adapted from Thai recipe but anyhow let’s try our own version and we will replace the Thai shrimp paste with “bagoong”, then add some "dilis" (anchovies) and green mango.

Here’s what we need:


2 tbsp oil

3 cloves garlic (minced)

1 chopped onions

1 cup pork (sliced into small pieces-optional)

2 tomatoes (optional)

3 cups of cooked rice

2 pieces of chili or hot pepper (medium-sized)

1 cup fried “dilis” (anchovies)

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tablespoons dried shrimp fry (alamang)

1 chopped green mango (small- medium size)


Let’s start!

Prepare all the ingredients to avoid hassle. Heat oil in a pan and sauté garlic, onion and tomato (optional) until golden brown. Add the pork and cook for few minutes. Pour the “bagoong” paste and sugar.

Add the rice. Mix well.

Mix the pieces of green mangoes and dilis. You can add whatever toppings you like.

Lastly, season it with your creativity to fire up the flavor of satisfaction and fun.

Bon Appetit!

Chop the mango depending upon you preference.  I still want to munch its sourness so we will chop it into cubes...
