Ginger Garlic paste is a very handy ingredient to be done in bulk and stored. This makes life easier. In our fast paced lives lot of things are readymade. But anything homemade is the best in quality and freshness. Ofcourse it 100% doesn’t have any preservatives. Store bought ones they might say no preservatives but we always have our own doubts. So to be 200 % sure of our ingredients lets try to do it ourselves.
Ginger can be stored in the freezer section for months. Peel the skin and wash them and dry them outside. Now store the ginger pieces in a zip log bag in the freezer section. Whenever you need just take a piece out and grate it, no need to defrost them.
Hope you all will try.
