As we were brought up by our granny who does not eat garlic, garlic takes place very rarely in our cooking. But knowing of the abundance of goodness that the garlic offers I started bringing it closer in my kitchen. My niece has taken it too very closely I would say, from the time she started eating solid food, garlic has impressed her so much and it continues to be her favorite even now. This dish is a way where we can easily add a couple of fistful of garlic in a breakfast or dinner.
