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 the recipe of cheese garlic bread 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.

  6. Hello mam, I have brought a new LG microwave convection oven.
    Could you please tell me which kind of utensils can I use in tha convection mode of the oven ? I mean the material. I can’t find anything online 🙁

    • chandni, you will have an instruction book and in that the materials will be mentioned. also a staff from the company comes and demonstrates on how to operate the oven. convection mode is used for baking. so any material which is used for baking in an OTG or a regular oven can be used in the convection mode. for baking aluminium trays or pans can be used. but these aluminium trays and pans should be meant for baking only. they will be available in a shop which sells baking stuff. you can also use borosil glass pans or bowls which are specifically meant for baking. but do remember that metals like aluminium cannot be used when you operate the oven in the microwave mode. metals will cause arcing (sparks).

      the ones available in shops locally are reasonable in rates, then the ones available online. local brands will not be expensive, but imported ones from usa or europe are very expensive. also avoid non stick pans or trays and even silicon ones. have mentioned a aluminium muffin mould link below. however do check the size of your oven before you buy any pan or tray.
