Burnt Garlic Fried Rice
Who doesn't love chinese food , especially when made Indian style.
Burnt Garlic Fried Rice is different from regular fried rice. Here the garlic is fried till it turns smokey but is not literally burnt.
The vegetables are all chopped into small cubes . If using fresh corn , boil it first in salted water.
I prefer to use short grain rice for fried rice.
I served it with Chili Paneer.
You can also make a manchurian .
