I always loved the garlic bread sticks served with pizzas in Domino’s pizza, Bangalore. Though many people did not like Domino’s, I loved them back in B’lore. I am yet to try them here in US. I never knew how they prepared the garlic bread sticks, which were soft, crunchy and had amazing taste.
Then, while watching a recipe show on TV, I saw this dish. It was a program on ‘Udaya news’, a Kannada channel, were people from all over Karnataka used to come and show their favorite recipes. I noted down the recipe but never thought it would turn out great. When we came to US, I didn’t know were to find the same bread. I was missing it badly. So one day I tried this recipe and I simply loved the taste. Usually when I buy ‘pav‘ for making pav bhaji, half the packet of pav still remains. I always make garlic bread with them and it is a favorite evening snack at my home these days :D.
4 pav or buns
1-2 tbl spn salted butter
1 tea spn chopped garlic
1/2 tea spn oregano
Slit the pav or bun into two.
Melt the butter. Apply butter (keep aside around 2 tea spns of butter) on all sides of buns.
Now mix garlic and remaining butter. Apply this on the pav (only on one side, preferably inside part of the pav/bun). Spread some oregano.
Preheat oven to 300 F for 5min. Line up a oven proof dish with parchment paper. Keep the pav/bun with the garlic side facing up in the dish and bake it for around 15mins at 300F.The aroma of garlic and oregano fills the entire house within minutes :).
Serve it with any dip. I like to eat them without any dips.
