How to: Ginger Garlic Paste

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Ginger Garlic Paste: This is the most imp ingredient in Indian cooking. As we all need this ginger garlic paste in our daily cooking. So, instead of making it daily, of-course some people like it to make fresh. But in these busy days, its a nightmare to make it daily. So, instead of making it daily u can make it once n store in fridge.

Remove the skin of ginger if it has any blk spots are dents..Same wth garlic too.This helps paste to retain its original flavor for longer periods.

All you need to make ginger garlic paste:

 Ginger : Garlic in 1 :1 ratio.  
For  1cup ginger take 1cup garlic. Grind it to a smooth paste by adding 1/2 cup water or required but not too much. Take it into a bottle n store it. If u want u can add 1tsp salt to this paste.
Make sure all the utensils u use to make this paste are  clean n dry. otherwise paste may turn to green color. Always use fresh ginger n garlic to make this paste. Always store in refrigerator and can be store upto 1month.
