Ginger Garlic Paste


Ginger garlic paste is very useful to have in the fridge, it keeps for ages and can be added to all sorts of Indian recipes.  Add a large chunk of peeled ginger to a whole head of garlic which has been peeled.  Blitz till finely blended.  Put the ginger and garlic in a jar then cover with lemon juice and a tsp of salt.  If the mixture is difficult to blend add the lemon juice at the blitzing stage.
