Garlic bread|Homemade Garlic Bread

With Pizza outlets starting everywhere in India few years back,I was introduced to a dish which I (didnt realise then)was going to stay in my recipe book forever.

Whether eaten with soup or eaten with cheese and sun dried tomatoes as starter,Garlic bread is a crowd pleaser.My mouth is drooling as I am a bread lover and can eat bread even without seasoning.

My kid doesnt eat garlic daal but give him this bread at anytime and the whole tin gets empty.
