Garlic Rice


Thank you Sujata Aparanji, my schoolmate for this recipe.

One of its kind, very flavorful and simple to make this garlic rice. We all loved it. I am sure all garlic lovers would definitely try this out. You can always use the more or less garlic according to taste, can maybe add or saute some veggies of your liking too. As per my friend’s recipe we need to saute onion, instead I grinded the onion.
