Apart from having it with delicious spaghetti or other exotic soups, we love garlic bread, in general. Many people specially order garlic bread at restaurants. This garlic-flavoured soft bread not only satiates our tummies but also tantalises our taste buds. However, it’s also one of the easiest recipes that can be tried at home. There’s no need to rush to restaurants or other food joints outside when you can make appetising garlic bread at home itself. Chef Pankaj Bhadouria shared a recipe for garlic bread. She also demonstrated a quick method of making cheese dip to have with the main dish.
You can prepare this recipe even when you don’t have an oven at home. In the caption, she stated, “Restaurant style Garlic Bread in just Rs 30 and that too without an oven! What?!?!? Make the softest and yummiest Garlic Bread in a Kadhai, along with a Cheese Dip!”
