It’s garlic again folks, and I am very excited to share this recipe with you.
This almost pedestrian cousin of onion (yes, it’s first cousins with onion, shallots and leeks!) can add flavour to almost any dish.
It has its own health benefits too.
I love garlic, and it seems so does the world! There is a restaurant in San Francisco by the name of “The Stinking Rose”, which even serves garlic ice cream. I haven’t eaten there, but just for the sake of being a good foodie, I will definitely try it out once.
This dish was suggested by my mother in laws, a gym instructor. It intrigued me to no end, so I decided to try it out the very next day. Simple, easy and one of the tastiest tidbits I have ever had with a drink. So much so that I forgot the drink and kept eating the fried garlic.
It’s one of the quickest most simple dishes to make. Try and get new garlic, with the pink/purple skin. It tastes much better, as it is fried with the skin on and the thinner the skin, the nicer it is to eat it.
Chillies can be added as per your taste – I love spicy food, and it tastes absolutely yum with whisky!
When you bite into it, its crisp and then the tender garlic hits your tongue and causes the taste buds to do a nice little jig. And then the salt and chillies ping inside your mouth and the entire taste makes you want to go on and on eating fried garlic.
I’m going to try these with scrambled eggs, cheese toast and pizza!
Try variations – With wasabi and light soy sauce. Black pepper and sea salt. Fry some green chillies with it!
Do let me know if you try any of these variations. I would love to hear from you.
