Burnt Garlic Fried Rice


“Burnt Garlic Fried Rice” is a yummy take on traditional Fried Rice. It is a simple dish which can be enjoyed all by itself, or served with any gravy base vegetable. Boiled rice mixed with variety of vegetables and a pungent flavor of garlic makes this dish taste awesome. I recommend it to all garlic lovers.
