This looked awfully good, simple, almost perfect! I made this last night and my BF and I were very pleased with the outcome. If possible, use leftover rice as fresh rice will be too moist. Leftover rice from Chinese takeout works well too. After making the dish the amount of garlic didn't seem excessive to me, but use your judgment.
