Put cooked rice (1 cup) out on a plate - let it cool off and release moisture
Then cut your garlic cloves (4) into thin slices.
Put oil (3T) into a frying pan - don't turn on the heat just yet.
Place in the garlic slices and minced garlic (1T) first into the cold oil.
Now, place it on a medium-low heat. The garlic will start to gently sizzle.
As soon as the minced garlic starts to lightly brown, immediately add-in the soy sauce (1T), salt (4-5 shakes) and rice.
Mix it in well. Then add in a nob of butter (1T). Mix again. Turn off heat.
Plate and enjoy :)
