Cuisine cambodian, Chinese, vietnamese
Servings 2 cups


  • 1 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Lb / 500 g Peeled Garlic


  • Chop up your garlic with a knife or a food processor. You want your garlic to be similar to the size of nerds candy, so try not to mince it too small.
  • Combine oil & minced up garlic in a pan, and cook on high heat. You are going to want to stir occasionally so that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan and to ensure the garlic does not burn.
  • Once the garlic starts to turn slightly brown, turn the heat down to medium. Continue to cook until the garlic turns almost golden brown.
  • When the garlic is almost golden brown, turn the heat off and move the pan to a non-heated section of your stove. Let it rest for 5 minutes or so.
  • Once the garlic is perfectly golden brown after resting, continue to let it cool until you can transfer it to an airtight container, or you can use it immediately.
