"G" is for Garlic. A to Z Challenge Day 7.

Ah, garlic. I can add it to almost anything. It's like the bacon of the vegetarian world!
Although a lot of vegetarians will argue with me on this.
In many communities, garlic is considered 'non-vegetarian'.
I wonder why. Is it because of the strong aroma?
Whatever...

There are few things as versatile or flavour-enriching as garlic.

The next time you are having a grill, take a whole garlic and add it to the oven rack. not only does the aroma spill over, you can also eat those cooked pods of garlic. And it is delicious!

Or

Take a cup of plain yoghurt. Add garlic seasoning, fresh ground black pepper and some black salt to taste. Blend well and serve with chips or khakra!

Or

Chop three tomatoes. Crush two pods of garlic. Add the juice of half a lime and salt. Add some chopped chillies if desired. You can have it as a salad or over toast!

And the vampires will not bother you either!

  4. Garlic is the best!! I love it and try to add it to anything I cook (when I cook). That dip sounds great and with pita chips.

    Stopping by from the A to Z challenge.

  5. I love garlic in much of everything. Great ideas for using it in dips, though my favourite is using it for keeping vampires at bay.
