GARLIC RICE





I first tasted this dish 4 years back when we went to Malaysia 4 yrs back.It was difficult for me to get vegetarian food initially(till we found Indian restaurant).So in one of the Chinese restaurant i found this in the menu ,which said vegetarian .so i ordered it but unfortunately they had egg crumbs as toppings :( [may be egg comes under vegge category for them LOL!]so i had to carefully pick those crumbs and finish my food, which was very tasty.

Later when i came back to India i never had a thought of trying this dish at home but after a year or so, when we made onion chutney there was this leftovers sticking on to the pan.Since i didn't want to waste that I mixed leftover rice with this. The flavour and the taste was something bit similar to the rice which i had in Malaysia only thing that was missing was garlic flavour.. so after few trial and error of improvisations i got this tasty recipe. I don't know if this is how they make but....its tasty and.... all that matters is me and my husband love it.Anyone who likes garlic will love it.

I am happy to sent this recipe to RICE MELA hosted by srivalli in her blog cooking 4 all seasons.


The measurements will be approximate and the amount given here is for 1 cup of cooked rice.



I am also happy to send this to Eat healthy-fight diabetes contest . Many may not know this and many people avaid garlic but... guess what.... Garlic has been tested and found to have antioxidant properties and micro-circulatory effects and could help reduce blood glucose, increase insulin secretion, and slow its degradation.

Garlic-1big

Onion-1/4 cup

Red chillies-6(according to taste)

Salt- to taste

Oil-3-4 tbs(approximately)



METHOD:
1)Cook rice with coconut milk and water(1/2 milk and 1/2 water)and keep aside(Or we can also use ordinary leftover rice)
