How to make Ginger garlic paste.
Wash and dry your ginger and garlic then peel them. Use a spoon to peel the ginger. It is much faster, and you will not waste a lot of ginger flesh like when using a knife.
For the garlic, separate the cloves and put them in a glass jar. Cover the jar with a lid and shake vigorously for some minutes.
Chop the ginger and garlic into chunks then place them in a blender. Add salt, and some water then purees until smooth.
Keep in a clean airtight jar and refrigerate. This paste can last for one to two weeks. You can as well add turmeric extract to this paste if you want it to last longer
