Garlic Fried Rice

Garlic Rice

Another flavor that can be easily infused with rice is garlic. I failed once making crispy garlic. It wasn’t crispy coz it was burned! I think the oil was too hot that when I added the garlic it suddenly turned dark brown and next minute it turned very dark brown and when I tasted it , it was too bitter! Now I know what’s the trick!

Here’s what I did:

10 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
Pinch of salt
2 cups cooked rice
Freshly ground black pepper

Heat oil in a pan with moderate fire. Once heated, turn the fire to the lowest. Add finely chopped garlic and stir occasionally; continue cooking until garlic turns golden brown. Remove garlic from the pan using a slotted spoon, leaving the remaining oil in the pan. Drain garlic with a kitchen paper (This is important to keep the garlic dry and crisp). Add rice to the pan and toss frequently until rice is turns slightly dark or until the garlic-flavored oil is well absorbed. Season with salt and pepper. Add half of fried garlic to the rice and toss further.

To serve, garnish the rest of the crispy fried garlic on top of the fried rice. Serve with your favorite viand.
