HOW TO STORE GARLIC AND GINGER PASTE



Garlic and ginger paste is a very essential part of Indian Cuisine. We use them in almost all the dishes. Though it is good to use the freshly ground paste each day, sometimes it is not possible to do that as we are short of time due to many reasons like having visitors or going out on errands.
This is an easy way of storing ginger and garlic paste for use. It is really comes handy at such times.

Method:
1. Peel and grind the garlic and ginger separately or together as you need it.
2. Transfer into zip lock bags. Flatten them and freeze.
3. Just before cooking you take it out, break a small portion as needed and use without having to thaw the entire thing.

  1. Good idea. I put them in a ice cube tray and freeze them. But it's a chore to take them out into a zip lock bag. Your method is quick so will do that now.

  2. A very useful tip Shobha, I too store chilli and ginger paste in ziplock bags, so easy to break off a piece and use it. I don't like to store garlic as it makes the fridge smell.
