In medium heat, saute' cooking oil in a large pan and add in garlic, onion and ginger.
Cook spices until they are wilted.
Add in chicken thigh and cover until moisture comes out.
Add in glutinous rice and mix with the ingredients and let cook for two minutes.
Add in the water. Cover and let the glutinous rice soften.
Make sure you stir the rice once in while to prevent it from sticking in the bottom. Continue cooking in medium heat.
Add in chicken bouillon and salt and fish sauce ( a must). Spice according to your preference. Add more water if needed. In this Arroz Caldo recipe, I added a total of 6 cups of water.
Simmer for another 3 minutes and serve hot.
