“Garlic Rice” by Tehminas’ Kitchen Corner

I can beat with my recipes all the times. And, this time I am giving the great and the perfect recipe for “Garlic Rice” for you guys. 
With a meat, seafood, or other protein dish on the side, it was a nice home cooked meal that kept me healthy, and kept me going on those long study nights. I most of the times cook Garlic Rice for my family and they love it as much as I do.

In many general variations of fried rice have their own specific list of ingredients. And, I think for the perfect flavor of each Chinese dish. You have to add proper ingredients with proper steps. There is a myth, mostly people are used to say like “hath hath ka farq hota hy” or “there is no difference to make a recipe with same ingredients and same steps”. Its’ totally a myth and nothing else. Steps always static. In fact, proper ingredients and steps are always static.

Interesting fact is Sinangág, also called “Garlic Fried Rice” or “Garlic Rice”.

Ahh for some reasons, I am unable to attach an image with my post. But yeah, I will definitely share an eye-catchy image for you guys only.
