Ginger Garlic Paste

The quintessential in any Indian kitchen is ginger garlic paste. I have always used  a store bought paste. I thought it was fine until the day I decided to give a try at home, then I realized home made is the best.  There are different versions of making this, but here is my version. I know there are so many of you, who make these at home but this is for those who rely on store bought paste. It is so simple and easy to make, then why not make at home.


What you need?

Ginger (washed, de- skinned and chopped), 1/2 cup
Garlic (de- skinned ) 1/2 cup
Oil, 1 teaspoon



How it is made?
  1. In a blender add ginger and garlic and grind them to fine paste.
  2. No need to add any water. 
  3. Then finally add oil and mix it well.
  4. Transfer this to a clean dry container and keep refrigerated

  16. For how long it can stay in the fridge? Once I tried making it (without oil though) and in less than a week it just went bad :(

    1. I use up all this in a week's time and I make it fresh again. But to make the shelf life longer, you can add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a pinch of turmeric too. You can even freeze it, if you want to store for longer duration. Thaw only the amount required and use it.
