Making Garlic Oil for Burmese Salads
Burmese salads are not made with dressings like others. We have staple ingredients in all of our salads; there are chilies/ garlic/ onion- oil, roasted chickpea flour, and soy sauce ( for a vegan version, traditionally, they use fish sauce ). At least those three ingredients are must-list ingredients in our salads, either with vegetables or noodles, or rice.
All Burmese households have oil cooked with onion, garlic, and chilies in glass jars as kitchen necessary items. They smell great; they add flavors and colors to our salads. Sometimes, we pour any of those oil on top of rice, sprinkle salt and eat with something crispy or fries, making easy and comfortable food for traditional Burmese people.
The following information is to make Garlic Oil. You can store it in a glass jar for few weeks at average room temperature.
