Homemade Ginger Garlic Paste
Ginger garlic paste is an essential for cooking; most of the recipes including Sri Lankan recipes require ginger garlic paste, specially recipes like chicken curry. Until recent, I used to grind this when it is needed for a recipe. But it takes time to grind it frequently for each recipe and thought of preparing it in a large amount. However I still prepare it in a small quantity which is enough for 1-2 weeks.
