  1. Hi Hetal and Anuja!

  2. Nice tip ladies.will definitely try ๐Ÿ™‚ .I usually wrap the garlic pods in a towel n gently hit them with a laddle for few seconds n they get peeled off quickly.

  3. Hi Hetal and Anuja!

    Thats such a crazy attempt to peel garlic in large quantities. I generally put them in hot water and peel them after sometime (learnt form your website only).

    I know we all are learning and the art of cooking and the tricks are an ever learning task. I appreciate your to try different things and sharing it with us.

    Thanks,

  4. That’s a crazy tip! I would be left panting in the kitchen attempting to do that lol!
    Since I don’t care about keeping the garlic’s shape intact as I would eventually be chopping it, I just place the blade of my knife (a wide one like a chef’s knife) over the garlic pod, and give it one bang with my palm. Garlic is crushed and skin is off!

    1. Hi Ancy,
      Great work-out, eh? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      The blade trick works well when you have a few to peel and after that the blade gets sticky and the peel is sticky and your hands are sticky… ๐Ÿ™

  5. Try using 2 metal bowls, preferably the same size, lock the tops with hands, shake-shake-shake, until you hear the bell sound fade away into a dull sound. Done.

  6. Frankly speaking I didn’t like this idea a lot infact this seems to be very tedious…sorry ladies.I totally agree with Parul and Deepa I personally do the same…this is risky too showing so much aggression and if the glass jar slips off our hand then boo…boo…boo

  7. Remove the unpeeled garlic cloves from the pods.Drizzle a little cooking oil over them and keep them in the sun for about 3-4hrs. And there,your large quantity of garlic can now be peeled in minutes.

  8. This method looks just as tedious as regular peeling. Unless I need whole garlic cloves, I just use a stainless steel dough scraper which I use to manually put pressure on each garlic pod. The skin slides off easily right away.

  9. HEY DEAR,
    I APPRECIATE YOUR TIP
    BUT I HAVE AN EVEN EASIER AND FASTER WAY TO PEEL OFF THE SKIN FROM A GARLIC
    TAKE THE BUNCH OF GARLIC APPLY A GENTLE PRESSURE WITH HANDS OR HIT IT ONCE OR TWICE
    PUT IN GLASS BOWL COVER IT GIVE IT A SHAKE FOR ABT 10 SECONDS AND DONE
    YOU CAN PICK THE CLOVES AND THROW THE SKIN
    JUST PUT THE KNIFE ON THE CLOVES AND CRUSH IT BY HITTING ON THE KNIFE ,THE SKIN’S GONNA POP OUT
