One famous delicacy in some provinces here in the Philippines is the so called "ampao" or puffed rice. I don't know how this is being made into a snack bar but I do have an idea how to simply cook it. Just as easy as 1,2,3 you can have an instant snack made out of leftover steamed rice; just leftovers. So as I always say, at home nothing is wasted.
water (just enough amount for washing)
oil (for cooking)
Let's start with the steamed rice. First, soak it in water for a few minutes to soften (leftover rice gets hard over time). Use clean hands to massage the rice to break it apart.
Now, drain the rice and make sure you remove all the water in it. Spread it into a large and wide serving tray.
Let it dry and sit under the sun for a few hours or until rice becomes brittle.
Gather and transfer in a container.
When the drying process is done you can start cooking the rice in a preheated oil.
Fry it until it puffs or turns light brown and crisp.
Remove excess oil then sprinkle with sugar.
Mix puffed rice and sugar then it's ready to serve.
