How to Make Burnt Garlic (Fried Garlic) / How to make Garlic Oil at Home / Homemade Garlic Oil / Garlic Infused Olive Oil / How to Make Garlic Infused Oil at Home

Burnt Garlic or Fried Garlic is new to me..I came across a recipe for noodles which uses this as the main ingredient. I loved it so much, that i want to try it asap. And i finally made it too..As a first step for that noodles recipe, i made this amazing fried garlic. It is so simple to make frankly, it needs only garlic and oil.

When you make this fried garlic, as a bonus you get a rich garlic infused oil too..I stored that oil in a air tight container and put it in fridge. Whenever i run out of garlic or too lazy to peel and chop a garlic, i use this oil for cooking. It has a intense garlicky aroma to it. So make this in bulk and keep it handy. It may make your simple meal a perfect one..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 10 to 15 mins
Makes : 1 cup of garlic oil & 3 to 4 tblspn of fried garlic


Oil - 1 cup ( Vegetable Oil or Light Olive Oil)

Peel Garlic and chop them.

Take a clean sauce pan and heat oil in it..Once the oil in warm, add the chopped garlic in it and keep cooking in a very low flame.

It will take around 8 to 10 mins for the garlic to turn into golden. Dont over fry the garlic, because the garlic keep on frying in hot oil as it cools.
