Two Ingrdients I Always Use When Cooking Savory Dishes

When cooking any dish I always use and . They are I can't go without. Besides giving the food flavor and smell they are also healthy, like garlic is good for high blood pressure. I love to use a lot if I can. I know some people don't like the smell or even taste but how can they eat at when for sure they use them too.

My does not like them and does not cook with them. I wonder because she loves my cooking and she always eats out and she does not complain. I guess if she can't see them it is ok.

I love the of garlic then adding the onions...hmmm it gives me to eat. Sometimes when we buy fried salted peanuts we ask for the extra fried garlic, hmm . I know it does not do your any good but good brushing and mouthwash can take care of that.

If i eat out, I usually try to rinse out my mouth in the bathroom (using bottled water) then if I can't brush I always have and .They help too.

Do you cook with onions and garlic?

We cook with both very often. I love the flavor and aroma of garlic and onions while they're cooking more than my wife, but we both enjoy them. Occasionally too much onion bothers my wife's throat.

Onions and garlic are staple ingredients in the Filipino cuisine. Although I don't cook that much, I almost always cook stirfry using of course, onions and garlic.

Onions and garlic are always my "go-to" and I use them in most everything I cook. I also love cooked celery.
I have often cooked many Filipino dishes, so I am familiar with your cuisine, having lived in islands of Guam and Hawaii, and being in the Navy. I've had many friends from the PI over the years.

The basis of all our desi dishes are fried onions and ginger-garlic paste whether we are cooking mutton, chicken vegetables or lentils. Tumeric powder is also a must and so are green coriander leaves, green chilies and ginger strips to garnish the dish before serving.

I use garlic except for sour soup and "nilaga". I use onions in almost anything I cook. But I hate them when I was a kid. :)
