Like onion, the entire bulb (‘cloves’) is almost without odour but, once cut or bruised, they produce an intensely strong and characteristic odour. Garlic is used in vegetable, meat and poultry dishes, especially in casserole,stew and marinade. A favourite in Chinese cuisine, garlic is fast becoming popular in Europe and USA. Garlic oil finds use in ready made spice – mixes, pharmaceuticals and disinfectants. Garlic is cultivated in most parts of India. some of the internationally acclaimed varieties of Indian garlic are ‘Poona’, ‘Nasik’, ‘Madurai’, and ‘Jamnagar’. Besides garlic powder and dehydrated flakes, India also exports oil and oleoresin with all constituents intact but without its pungent odour.
