We also eat them raw mostly with Kao Man Gai (Chicken Rice) and Kao Ka Moo (Stewed Pork Rice).
Easy tips for those who love to try cooking Thai food at home:
And that's your Thai stir-fried dish!
The thing with garlic skin... don't peel it! Garlic skin gives the better taste to the garlic itself especially when deep-fried, served with the deep-fried dishes. People who love eating garlics swear by it. Besides that's the old way of cooking Thai food: keep garlic skin especially the brown skin found in Thai garlics.
Personally I peel garlic skin if I can't find Thai skin (with brownish skin)... The white skin is rather too thick.
