Ginger Garlic Paste

Cooking is something really fun to do and needs lots of creativity and patience in making a wonderful meal for the family, but one thing I really hate is peeling garlic for cooking. It just takes so much of my time and patience so I always peel lots of it and store in a air tight container and keep it in the fridge. 

I use ginger garlic paste for most of my cooking and always have some in fridge so that I don't have to prepare a fresh one when planning to cook. Ginger garlic paste is very easy to prepare but peeling garlic again something I really hate. But I have a very easy way to peel garlic for ginger garlic paste preparation, let's look at what actually I'm trying to say;

500g of ginger (cleaned and cut small)
500g of garlic (cleaned)

Prepare 500g of ginger and garlic

Soak garlic pod in water, this make it easy to peel the skin off

Peel off skin from ginger and cut into small pieces

Put ginger and garlic in a blender and add very little water to make into fine paste

Store it in an air tight container and can be stored it in fridge for nearly a month


  1. nice tip on soaking garlic :) i use oil and vinegar instead of water to make the paste
