Ginger garlic paste is one of the most essential and religiously used ingredients in our Indian cuisine. It is very easy to prepare and taste much better than store bought paste. I tried a couple of reputed brands in ginger garlic paste, but just back off as really bad in taste. At last, after trying different permutation and combination, this ginger, garlic recipe worked for me. Having ready to use ginger garlic paste makes the cooking process super fast and enhance the food taste as well.. It gives pleasing aroma to food and loaded with many health benefits. Ginger garlic combo is not only works great on our immune system, but it improves our digestive system as well.
In today's recipe I had used lemon juice, turmeric, salt and cooking oil for preservation. I had also slightly cooked this paste for a few minutes to remove excess water, if any available in this paste. I had used up both the ingredients in equal quantity, but it can also be used in 60:40 ratio. i.e 60% garlic and 40% ginger.
