Garlic is a common food that is used in several recipes for its strong pungent taste.


Here are some cooking tips that can help prevent garlic from burning:

1. If the recipe doesn’t call for it, instead of grating or finely chopping your garlic, chop your garlic into larger pieces. Smaller pieces of garlic cook in no time and may also start to burn before you know it.

2. Never fry garlic over a high flame. Keep it on a low flame or medium heat when there are other ingredients in the pan.

3. Try adding garlic later in the roasting process. For example, when frying onions, green chillies, etc., add garlic towards the end when the onions are already starting to brown. This way, garlic will also be perfectly roasted at the time of the onion.

4. If you want a distinctive garlic aroma in your dish or sauce, you can add whole unpeeled garlic at the beginning and later remove the skin and continue cooking. This way, the garlic releases its deep essence into the bowl without burning itself.

5. Check that the oil or butter in the pan is not too hot. If you toss garlic in very hot oil it will burn crispy in an instant, before you even notice it. If your oil is a little too hot, turn off the gas, let it cool down a bit, and then turn it back on before adding the garlic.

We all love the taste and aroma of garlic in our food. Let’s swear to use this amazing food wisely with these cooking tips.
