burnt garlic fried rice recipe with step by step photos – indo chinese recipe of burnt garlic fried rice. one of the popular variety of veg fried rice available in the chinese restaurants and stalls in india.

i had got a couple of requests to post the recipe of burnt garlic fried rice. i had burnt garlic fried rice many times in restaurants, so was easy for me to know what goes into it and how its made. yes some of the times, i end up asking the chef in restaurants, as to how the recipe is made.

preparing garlic fried rice is similar to making veg fried rice but with a small difference. this small difference makes for a big change in the overall taste and flavor of this fried rice – the garlic is stir fried till its slightly burnt and then mixed with rice or the rice is mixed with it. you can choose whatever method suits you. i stir fry the garlic before and then add the veggies and rice. if you want you can stir fry the onions, veggies and rice first. then stir fry the garlic in a bit of sesame oil and then add to the veg fried rice.

few more delicious rice recipes from indo chinese cuisine are schezwan fried ricecorn schezwan fried rice, 5 spice rice, paneer fried rice, mushroom fried rice and sweet corn fried rice recipe.

while making most of the indo chinese recipes, you need to chop the veggies finely. either use a good knife or use a food processor. food processor is easier, but i prefer to chop the veggies with knife. could be as thats how i have been trained 🙂

serve garlic fried rice plain or with a side gravy dish like paneer manchurian or mushroom manchurian or paneer schezwan gravy.
