How to make Ginger Garlic Paste at home

Homemade Ginger Garlic Paste
Homemade Ginger Garlic Paste
Ginger garlic paste is an essential for cooking; most of the recipes including Sri Lankan recipes require ginger garlic paste, specially recipes like chicken curry. Until recent, I used to grind this when it is needed for a recipe. But it takes time to grind it frequently for each recipe and thought of preparing it in a large amount. However I still prepare it in a small quantity which is enough for 1-2 weeks.

How to make and store ginger garlic paste
Preparing ginger garlic paste is easy & simple. But need to add some oil & turmeric powder to keep it for few days in a fridge without spoiling. Thanks to all foodies who shared homemade ginger garlic paste recipes over internet!
Few tips to keep in mind:
-Use an air tight container to store the Ginger Garlic Paste.
-When use it, use a separate dry spoon for it.
-Don’t add water as it will spoil the paste.
-Tightly close the lid after using as it has a strong flavor & can spread to other foods inside the fridge.
