Burnt Garlic Fried Rice

Burnt garlic fried rice is similar to the fried rice that is usually made except we add some extra garlic to it and the garlic is slightly burnt to give a unique flavor to the rice. 

Burnt Garlic Fried Rice

You can add the garlic at the beginning or you can saute the garlic separately and add it at the end. I make it exactly the same way I make the usual fried rice except I allow the garlic to burn a little bit. 

Burnt Garlic Fried Rice

Preparation time 20 mins | Cooking time 20 mins | Serves 2

  • Basmati rice - 1 cup, cooked
  • Garlic - 2 tbsp, finely chopped
  • Spring onions - 1/4 cup, chopped
  • Vegetables - 1/2 cup each (I used carrots, beans, cabbage, capsicum)

Burnt Garlic Fried Rice

1. Cook the basmati rice and let it cool or you can use left over rice too.
2. Chop the vegetables and spring onion fine. 
3. In a wok, add oil and then add the chopped garlic. Saute until the garlic burns slightly. Do not let it burn completely. It should be nicely browned. 

4. Then add the chopped onions and saute until it turns translucent.
5. Add the chopped beans and carrot first and cook on high heat for 2-3 minutes.

6. Then add the capsicum and the cabbage and cook for another 3 minutes.
7. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, pepper and salt. Mix well and cook for 2 minutes.

8. Add the cooled rice and mix well.

9. Add the spring onion greens and mix well.
