Oven Roasted Garlic

garlic 003

Life at work and home is so hectic that some days I don’t even know if I am coming or going. On the work front, it is like the people who were asleep last December are suddenly waking up to the dawn of the New Year.  To make up for all the lost time they want to get things done as if there is no tomorrow, pile on work and slap unrealistic deadlines on lesser mortals like us. As a result my work gets extended to later in the night and I miss spending time on my blog. 

OK, enough said but that is a reality and nature of the business. Anyway, the reason for bringing up this long winding was to make a point that I am missing many of the events hosted by fellow food bloggers and also missing their deadlines. My husband is a huge garlic fan and so we usually buy a huge bin of already peeled garlic from SAMS/COSTCO. I had made dish long time ago to participate in Sunita’s “Think Spice“event. But when I was putting together this post I realized that I was already 6 days late for the event submission. Never the less I wanted to share this easy and tasty recipe.


2 cups peeled garlic pods
Red Chilli powder
Dry sweet basil powder (optional)
Rosemary seasoning (optional)
Oil, salt

garlic 014


  • Heat the oven to 400 F. Grease a pan or line it with aluminum foil.
  • Add garlic and about 2 Tbsps of oil
  • Now add salt, turmeric and chilli powder, rosemary seasoning, basil. Mix thoroughly so that the powder gets coated evenly on the garlic.
  • Add more oil if necessary.
  • Place it in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes. Check after 15 minutes and give it a small stir so that the position of the garlic is changed.

 This can be served as a side dish along with Rice.

    I just saute garlic cloves in oil until roasted when I crave something like this but this sounds like a grand idea to make them large scale! Love it.
