Ginger-Garlic Paste

Well this is no special recipe but really wanted to tell you guys that no readymade bottled ginger-garlic is as good as homemade. For years I have been thinking I should just do homemade but I was lazy and thought it was too much work and bought the readmade one and compromised on the flavor. Well finally when my sister was here I decided I will do it since I had her help.

So all I did was just buy already peeled garlic from Costco.. (did not use everything). So here is the quantity I used.

Ginger - 500 gms
Garlic - 500 gms
salt - 1 tbsp

Peeling the ginger was really easy too. You really dont have to peel perfectly. Just soak them for a while and peel them with a spoon. All I did was put it in the food processor. Here again my wonderful processor did the magic.

I froze half of it and kept half in the fridge. Fresh one doesnt stay long since there are no preservatives so its better to freeze them.

It's easy and its the best and changes a lot of flavor of your dishes.
