Making masala pastes ahead of time helps a lot when you have unexpected guests.This is such a flavourful masala paste with the freshness of the mint and coriander leaves combined with garlic, ginger, onion, tomato and green chillies. Tomato is optional.. some don't add it and use other ingredients like amchoor or tamarind for the tanginess.
Coriander Leaves.....1 cup
Mint leaves ........... 1/2 cup
Garlic.................7 to 8 cloves
Ginger ...............1 inch piece
Grind the above ingredients to make the green masala.
You can even store it in the freezer for later use.
Divide it into small portions and store in plastic containers or zip lock bags.
You can use it in many curries. Some of them are here. Click on them to see the recipe.
