Fried garlic topping is so yummy on Thai food or any food, yet so easy to mess up! But these 5 tips on how to make fried garlic will help you make it golden and crispy every time!


  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 whole head of garlic, cloves peeled and finely chopped


  1. Combine oil and garlic in a saucepan over low heat.
  2. Stir constantly for about 3 minutes until garlic starts to turn a light brown color, as shown in the pics, and the amazing aroma of toasted garlic hits your nose and makes you smile.
  3. Take it off the heat immediately because in a split-second it can go from brown to black and smell burnt instead of amazing.
  4. The hot oil in the hot pan removed from the burner will finish toasting it up some if need be.
  5. Pour it into a heatproof container and sprinkle on any Thai dishes or any dish that needs some garlicky crunch!
