Gar­lic

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Cook's Basics -

Well known for its dis­tinc­tive, pun­gent smell, gar­lic is quite fiery and crunchy when raw, but be­comes more mel­low and creamy as it cooks. Of­ten used at the start of cook­ing, es­pe­cially in Asian cook­ing, gar­lic adds a great deal of flavour to any dish, and is un­doubt­edly one of the most in­dis­pens­able in­gre­di­ents around. Apart from adding flavour to dishes, gar­lic is also prized for its health prop­er­ties – it is said to in­crease cir­cu­la­tion, and acts as an anti-in­flam­ma­tory.
