  • 1 cup garlic skin peeled & chopped
  • 1/2 cup ginger skin peeled & chopped
  • 1/2 tsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Scrap off the top part then peel the garlic skin, repeat to finish.The garlic pearls I used were quit big so chopped it further.just half or 3 slices per garlic that is enough.
  • Measure and set aside.Now take ginger peel the skin using a spoon that is very easy and makes sure that only the thin layer of the skin is peeled.
  • Chop it into smaller pieces.Measure and set aside.
  • The ratio I use is 1:2(ginger:garlic).Measure after chopping.Add both ginger and garlic to mixer jar, add salt to it.
  • Add oil to it.Grind it to a fine paste.Store it in a clean dry container.
  • Refrigerate and use it.Keeps well atleast for 2 months.


  • Do not use water while grinding.
  • Do not add more oil than mentioned, this is just enough.
  • As salt is less you need not be mindful while adding this paste in recipes.
  • You can use small garlic too in that case no need to chop.
  • Always measure after chopping(if you plan to chop).
  • I used normal mixie to make this paste, you can even use food processor.
