Garlic rice

Garlic is an excellent herb for creating and maintaining overall health. It is a powerful natural antibiotic. This natural antibiotic is effective against toxic bacteria, viruses, and fungus. Garlic is claimed to help prevent heart disease (including atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure) and cancer. So I always try to add garlic wherever possible in my cooking. Here comes the recipe for garlic rice.
