Question :

Hi, I want to make a paste of ginger garlic and green chili and want to know the method of making it and storing it in fridge and also in the freezer. I have read that storing garlic in oil causes botulism disease so how can I make and store garlic paste in fridge without any danger of this disease. Is there any way in which I can store this pastes in freeze for about two weeks as I don't get time to make them every week.

Answer :

Hi, Many thanks for being with us in the exciting world of culinary. To make garlic paste, blend peeled and chopped garlic in a blender or food processor, add enough water to make thick paste, add more water for thin paste. Make the ginger, onion and chili paste in the same way. To make tomato paste, place tomatoes with little water in heavy skillet, cover and cook on low heat for 5-8 minutes or until the skin is soft. Remove from heat and keep aside to cool. Peel off the skin and blend in the blender or food processor to make paste. To freeze the paste, spread a thin layer of the paste in a tray or cookie sheet, cover with clink plastic and freeze. When almost set, mark squares with a sharp knife and freeze until hard. Break into squares and put it in the air tight plastic container and freeze again. Use as required. You can freeze the paste in the ice cube trays. When set take out the cubes and put them in the freezer bags and freeze. These pastes can be frozen up to 3 months. But it is best if you consume them with in one month. Freezing for long time can reduce the fresh smell of garlic and ginger and of course nutrients.
