Ginger Green Chilli Paste is an essential addition to the Indian kitchen, as it readily lends a zingy flavour to many a savoury dish.
It is used in most regional Indian cuisines, and is therefore readily available in the market under various commercial brands. However, these packed pastes generally contain preservatives and the flavour is also not so fresh.
Considering that the paste is so easy to make at home, we suggest you make a small batch and keep it handy in the fridge at all times.
It is a simple four-ingredient recipe, and you can make it within minutes. Adding oil to the Ginger Green Chilli Paste gives it a smooth texture and also increases the shelf life as oil acts as a natural preservative by shielding away bacteria and other trouble-makers!
This homemade paste is guaranteed to make your cooking faster, while also enhancing the taste of Indian dishes!
