Home made Ginger garlic paste

In my initial days of cooking I used store bought ginger garlic paste. But I don’t get that aroma in dishes I have used. Then I made it fresh when I needed. I can definitely see the change in taste and aroma. So I decided to make it in large quantities for handy.

When I made first I just added ginger and garlic. But the very next day,it changed its colour and I didn’t get the aroma. So when I tried next time I added a few rock salt as we used to add rock salt along tamarind to store. This time it worked. Even after weeks it didn’t change colour and aroma.

I can assure you will not buy store one after trying this.?

  1. Ginger and Garlic, two of my favorite ingredients to spice any dish up! Wildy used in Taiwanese cooking as well! I can see this as a multifunctional paste!

    1. True?.. this can make the dish truly aromatic.. Thank you?

  2. Very handy. I too make it at home… Great share

  3. Agree with you! Home made is the best 🙂

    1. True dear?… Thank you..

  4. Like the fresh ones than the brought in.

  5. Thank You so much for sharing this useful tip

  6. When a recipe calls for ginger/garlic paste–can freshly chopped ones be substituted? I’ve always hesitated trying recipes calling for ginger/garlic paste because I don’t get the shop-bought ones in jars. Or if I make my own, I may not be using them often (is making them into a paste just for convenience, or is there a difference in flavour from freshly chopped ones?).

    1. There is definitely a difference in aroma of the dish…in dishes such as Biriyani or Pulao or some Chicken curries I don’t think the chopped ginger garlic can give the flavour and aroma of the paste..?… When you try it for you can see the difference??

      1. Thanks for the info. I would then like to make your ginger-garlic paste some time 🙂

        1. Do surely try.. you will like the difference?

Appreciate your feedback
