My famous ingredient, I am always using in my recipes. Homemade red chilli ginger and garlic paste. I honestly cannot do without it. Perfect for curries, marinates and soups. Homemade and freshly ground is the best.
1 cup ground dried red chillies
1/2 cup ground fresh ginger
1/2 cup ground fresh garlic
1/2 to 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder
I washed my dried red chillies thoroughly and cut out the brown stems.
Soak them for a few hours until soft.
I added my soft dried red chillies to a liquidizer with a dash of water process till crushed.
Add the crushed chillies to the ginger and garlic along with the red chilli powder.
I also add about two teaspoons of oil to my paste and mix well.
