Garlic butter is the butter with the perfect balance of buttery and garlicky flavors, making it such a mild yet flavorsome spread for many recipes such as garlic bread, garlic breadsticks, garlic pull-apart bread, etc. The best part about this recipe is the balance of flavors and the consistency of garlic butter. The butter has an absolutely spreadable consistency in spite of being refrigerated. The reason shall be discussed in the ingredients section. Garlic butter can be used for many bread recipes as well as to add oomph to dal and gravies etc.
Garlic butter as the name suggests calls for garlic and butter. But there is a secret ingredient which does a lot of magic. The secret ingredient is oil. Oil is added in equal quantity as the butter. Oil does two things. It maintains the consistency of the garlic butter even though the butter is kept in the fridge, it remains smooth and usable. Secondly, oil doesn’t let the flavor of butter overpower. As a result, there is profound garlic flavor. And the garlic butter has a total balance of the aromas. Let’s see what all are the ingredients required to make Garlic Butter.
Butter: I have used the salted butter by Amul for this recipe. You can use any butter of your choice.
Oil: Oil and butter are combined in the same ratio. Oil should be added before adding butter; this prevents the butter from getting burnt.
Garlic: The quantity of garlic can be adjusted as per taste but if the recipe is followed till T you will get perfectly balanced garlic butter.
Flavors: Chopped coriander and Italian seasoning have been used to flavor garlic butter. You can use the herbs of your choice.
