Usually, we use garlic to make our curries, soups, and chutneys, but green garlic is a form of it, which may not be known to many.

On the other hand, those who have used green garlic will be well aware of its taste and benefits, and those who are unaware of it will start consuming it after knowing about it.
Difference between garlic and green garlic
Green garlic is a smaller version of garlic that is harvested before the garlic bulbs are fully developed. So, what you get are long green leaves with small white bulbs at the end. It is the green-colored stalks/leaves that are used to make this dish and other dishes not only in India but across Asia. While in regular garlic you get buds, green garlic has leaves which add freshness to any dish. Apart from this, green garlic looks like green onion but its bulbs are smaller than that, this slight difference makes these two different from each other.

Green garlic is as beneficial as regular garlic clove. It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which help a lot in boosting our immunity. It is also considered good for digestion and people who have constipation problems should consume it. How to use green garlic
