Homemade Ginger Garlic Paste

Many Indian recipes called for ginger garlic paste and I normally keep a bottle of shop bought ginger garlic paste at home to serve that purpose.

I saw a few bloggers making this ginger garlic paste at home recently, and was interested to try it out. When the last bit of my shop bought ginger and garlic paste used up,  I went to shop for lots and lots of ginger and garlic and off to make some of my own.

Evverything I made using this homemade ginger garlic paste turned out sooooo good! No kidding!

200 gm ginger
250 gm garlic
3 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt

Wash ginger thoroughly, using a small steel spoon, scratch away black spots and dirty spots on ginger roots, peel garlic.

Grind together all ingredients into a paste. It could be store in fridge for 2-3 weeks or in freezer for a year, I freeze up half of mine.
