Burnt Garlic Rice


Recently when I was talking with one of my friend, she suggested me to try Burnt Garlic Rice. It was very new to me, as usual I started surfing for the recipe and then planned to prepare, just as a little twist I thought of preparing it with Brown Long grain (Basmathi) Rice.

The flavor, color and texture of the rice was too good. I made this out purely with OliveOil, #JoinOliveOilRevolution. I would say that my kids was just ok with this rice but I and my hubby liked it. I accompanied it with Fried Tiger Prawn, Coleslaw and Potato wedges. Let us move on to the recipe…
