Fried Garlic (กระเทียมเจียว)
20 cloves Thai garlic
a pinch of sugar
4 tablespoon vegetable oil
1. Peel of the garlic skin. Smash them lightly with a pestle on cutting board.
2. Chop them up lightly into smaller pieces with a cleaver. Add in sugar.
3. Heat up the oil to deep fry the garlic. When the oil is slightly heated, toss in garlic.
4. Cook slowly, keep stirring. Get them off the wok quickly once you spot some browning. The garlic will continually brown once taken off the wok. Better to be undercook than to overcook. They can be really bitter when burnt. That would be mood spoiler!
This fried garlic can be sprinkled on porridge, noodles, fried fish, soup, etc.
