Ginger-Garlic Paste, also known as Adrak Laisan, is another important staple to have in your 'jahez'. To save time, store-bought versions may be used, but the aromas from the homemade version enhance the taste much more than what you would get with store-bought versions.
2 Cups Peeled and Roughly Chopped Ginger
1 Cup Peeled Garlic
1. Place the chopped ginger and garlic in a food processor. You may have to divide into 2 parts.
2. Add about 1/2 cup of water and chop to a fine paste.
3. Place in air-tight container and keep in refridgerator. This will store for about 2 months. You can also divide into smaller portions, freeze, and use as needed.
