Cooking with Garlic

Today, Chef Bablu has given us a handy tip on cooking with garlic, a vital ingredient in cooking.

This tip gives us help with how to make a garlic clove easier to manage, especially with peeling.

“Garlic is something you will use lots of in your Indian cooking and some varieties are very hard to peel. We usually split the bulb into cloves and give it a short blast in the microwave on high”, he says, “You can also soak it for a minute in boiling water. After this it will be very easy to peel.”
