Heat cooking oil in a pot over medium heat and saute garlic, onion and ginger until onions are translucent.
Add the chicken pieces and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Add the fish sauce and uncooked rice then stir/mix and cook for about 2 minutes.
Pour-in 4 to 5 cups of water and drop the chicken cube then cover the pot. Bring to a boil.
Lower the heat and stir occasionally to avoid burning the rice at the bottom of the pot.
Let simmer until the rice is fully cooked, approx. 25 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning and dash with ground black pepper.
Serve hot and top it off with the hard boiled eggs, toasted garlic and scallions. Bon Appetit.
