garlic bread recipe on tawa or skillet – a super easy recipe of making garlic bread on a tawa or frying pan and without the oven. the taste of this garlic bread is similar to the ones we get in pizza joints. if you have an oven, you can also bake these instead of toasting on a skillet.

i often get requests to post simple, easy, quick recipes and the ones made with less ingredients. this garlic bread recipe falls in this category of recipes. if you live alone or live in a hostel or have less time for cooking, then you can rustle up this recipe as a quick bite snack.

usually i make garlic bread as an accompaniment to soups or as a starter. but they equally taste good with tea or coffee. i have also shared a cheesy garlic bread recipe which is also an easy recipe.

the aroma of garlic stands out in the recipe. so if you are sensitive to strong pungent aromas, then i suggest to slightly saute the crushed garlic before adding to butter.

homemade breads are always good, but if using bakery or store brought bread, then use good quality fresh bread. you can use wheat bread or multi grain bread or even brown bread or whole wheat sandwich bread or any bread of your choice.
