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.?
Ginger – 1/2 cup roughly chopped
Garlic pods – 3/4 cup peeled
Rock salt – 1 or 2 tsp
- Take all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth. Do not add water.
- Store refrigerated in airtight container.
- Use dry spoon to take the paste.
- This will come for weeks if stored and used properly.
