How to make Ginger-Garlic Paste at home ??

Ginger-garlic paste is invariably a common ingredient in many dishes and has many healthy benefits on our body.Though now a days,ginger-garlic paste is readily available in stores but I am somehow not comfortable using the store brought paste.This homemade paste hardly requires anytime to prepare.You can peel the skin of ginger & garlic watching your favorite TV shows and movies,then finally wash & add it to the blender.Does it take much off your time?? I know the answer is 'no' then what's stopping us from making these at home to keep it handy for all dishes.Make your own paste at home to ease you in preparing your delicious flavorful dishes !!




Ingredients
ginger a large piece 3"(refer notes)
garlic 20 cloves
oil 5-6 tbsp




Method
-Peel the skin of ginger and garlic cloves.Wash and pat dry them in a paper towel.
-Blend it in a blender with oil until smooth.(Add oil slowly and little by little)
-Remove in clean dry bottles and preserve in refrigerator for future use !!



Servings ~ 100 gms

NOTES
* You can add quarter of a spoon of salt to the paste too,some say it lasts longer.I haven't tried adding,this is a tip given by one of my blogger friends.
* You can prepare the individual paste too either ginger or garlic using the same method.
* If you want more quantity then increase the garlic,ginger and oil ratio accordingly.The basic rule is both ginger and garlic should be equal in quantity.
* Stays good for a month in refrigerator.
* You can make a label of your choice mentioning the date of preparation.
* You can cut the ginger along with skin ,but I usually remove the skin.

Thanks JUlie, this was a very informative post. Though I'm lazy to prepare my own paste (I either just use store bought or add the ginger-garlic pieces whole), I'm tempted to try this once.

I too make my ginger-garlic paste at home all the time. It definitely makes the food taste better and is better than the store bought preservative-laden one. However, I add salt and turmeric to mine and freeze half and refrigerate the other half:)
