Step 2 – Fry garlic for garlic oil

  • In a small pan, heat ¼ cup vegetable oil over a medium heat. Add the chopped garlic and fry until golden brown.
  • Drain, reserving the oil and setting the fried garlic aside separately.

    (Garlic can also be cooked in olive oil to create more flavorful garlic oil.)
