Easy Paste

For people pressed for time this paste would come handy, especially when have to make a dish elaborately and have no time. Ready made ginger garlic pastes have preservatives, which some might not prefer.

So here I am sharing a recipe of ginger,garlic and green chilli paste which takes the flavors of any curry/rice to the next level. Can be used even for Pulavs and Biryanis.


Here comes the recipe:


Makes 1 small vati (bowl)

Ginger: 2 inch piece

Garlic: 10 -12 cloves

Green Chili: 4-5


1.Wash the ginger, chop roughly.

2.Wash and pat dry the green chillies.

3. De skin the cloves and take all of them in a mixie jar.

4. Grind coarsely without water.

Transfer in a airtight bowl and use as needed.


Stays fresh for around a month if used with clean spoon and refrigerated.



PS: This paste can be used for making yummy Batata Vadas too  🙂





Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
