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.

Beetroot Fry

Sunday, April 18, 2010

It is difficult to believe how the hardy, crunchy often rough looking exterior of raw beets can be transformed into something wonderfully soft and buttery once they are cooked. While beets are available throughout the year, their season runs from June through October when the youngest, most tender beets are easiest to find.
Edible green leaves are attached to the tapered round or oblong root portions that we know as beets. While we often think of beets having a reddish-purple hue, some varieties are white, golden-yellow or even rainbow colored. The sweet taste of beets reflects their high sugar content making them an important raw material for the production of refined sugar; they have the highest sugar content of all vegetables, yet are very low in calories 
Beets are my fav, may be bcoz of their  eye catching color n buttery taste. My mom used to make lot of varieties wth beets ranging from sweets n savories to curries. 

Beets: 1 big, peeled n chopped finely
Onion: 1 medium, chopped finely
Oil: 1tbsp
Red chili: 2-3 flakes
Channa dal: 1 tsp
Cumin n mustard seeds: 1 tsp each
Red chili powder: 1tsp
Coriander powder: 1tsp
Garam masala: 1tsp
Salt: to taste
Garlic: 4-5 cloves, crushed

1) In a pan heat oil. Add red chili n Channa dal. Fry for 1 min.
2) Add cumin n mustard seeds. let them splutter  n add onions. Fry for 5mins or until onions are transparent on medium heat.
3) Stir in chopped beets n fry for 10 mins on medium to low heat covered.
4) By now beets will be soft. Cook for another 2 mins on medium to low heat uncovered.
5) Sprinkle all spices n adjust thm to ur taste. Cook for 1 min
6) Add crushed garlic cloves n cook for 1min n switch off.
Enjoy this delicious n healthy Beets fry with rice or chapathi.
