Crispy Garlic Oil

Crispy Garlic Oil Recipe

Crispy fried garlic make a delicious topping while garlic oil can be used in stir-fries, or as a seasoning oil, to enhance the flavour of other dishes.

You may also cut the garlic to uniform thin slices instead of finely chopped. Do look out for the colour of the garlic instead of following the timing in the recipe strictly.

Check out the step-by-step pictures at the previous page.


  • 2 bulbs (about 20 cloves) garlic peeled and finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

You also need

  • small wokpan or pot
  • heat-proof spatula and bowl


  1. Heat olive oil in a wokpan or pot on medium. The oil is hot enough when tiny bubbles gather,  and a small piece of chopped garlic added to the oil starts to sizzle gently right away.
  2. Add the rest of the chopped garlic, stirring now and then with a spatula so that the garlic cooks evenly. Once the garlic starts to change colour, take the wok off the heat and stir the garlic with a spatula until they turn light golden brown.
  3. Transfer the contents of the wok in a small bowl. The garlic will continue to cook for a little longer in the bowl of hot oil until it turns a lovely golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.

Usage & Storage

  • Crispy Garlic Condiment When the oil has cooled, separate the crispy garlic from the garlic-infused oil using a strainer. Keep the crispy garlic in a small container with a thin layer of garlic oil covering it and refrigerate. To use, spoon what you need and the oil thaws quickly at room temperature or on the stove. The crispy garlic can be used as a topping or condiment and in salads.
  • Garlic-Infused Oil Keep the garlic oil in a glass bottle at room temperature. It is great for stir-fries, salad dressing & as a seasoning oil.

  1. Your kitchen must have smelt heavenly while making this aromatic oil. I should make a batch too.

  2. Agree with Angie! For garlic lovers, the garlic aroma in the kitchen must be heavenly :P I never make them at home though. Also love crispy shallots(and oil).

  3. Do you need to separate the garlic from the oil? Can it just be stored together?

    • Separate it if you want the garlic-infused oil by your kitchen countertop for quick cooking and usage. Otherwise you can also store together as it thaws quickly at room temperature.
