Garlic Recipes: Our recipes make the best of garlic's delicious pungency

Highlights
  • Did you know garlic is one of the oldest cultivated plant?
  • Garlic comes with lot of health benefits and is used in home remedies
  • From apptisers to mains, garlic can be used in a range of dishes

There are two or three ingredients that get wonderfully assimilated in the kitchens and palates of regions around the world and garlic is one of them. One of the most widely used flavour-enhancers by various global cuisines, garlic is essentially an underground root bulb, similar to onions, leeks and shallots. Did you know that it is also one of the oldest cultivated plants by humans? This is probably another reason for garlic's widespread appeal and its indispensable nature, when it comes to cooking a wide variety of dishes. One can recognise the smell of garlic from quite a distance, due to its uniquely pungent aroma that is quite strong. But not everyone loves this versatile underground vegetable. Some people may crinkle their noses if their dishes turn out to be too 'garlicky'.

But if you are anything like us, you could probably vouch for the delicious transformation that even a little bit of garlic can bring about in a dish. Although not everyone may find the taste and flavour of garlic desirable and tasty, it sure comes with a whole range of health benefits as well. This is why a number of ancient medicinal systems revere garlic and include it in a number of home remedies for big and small ailments. Strictly from a cooking point of view though, garlic has been a highly-valued commodity that is used in both fresh and dried forms in kitchens around the world.
