burnt garlic fried rice recipe

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 fried rice varieties from indo chinese cuisine are:

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.

    • meenakshi, i am using sprig toasted sesame oil. toasted sesame oil gives a lovely Chinese style smoky flavor. but even sesame oil (gingelly oil) made from raw sesame seeds can be used.

  1. Hi tnx for sharing, it looks yummy, will surely try. Sesame Oil which we have here is thicker and added at the end for flavour and to make the rice fragrant. It cannot be used for frying. What type of Sesame Oil do you use for this recipe please do share….tnx so much. God bless you 🙂 for all your wonderful recipes !

    • dimpy, i use the regular sesame oil which is made from raw sesame seeds. the toasted sesame oil can also be used. thats what the restaurant folks use in most of the chinese cooking here. welcome dimpy and thanks for your kind wishes 🙂
