Let’s talk about the Ingredients for Ginger Chili Paste

Ginger chili paste calls for ginger and green chilies. Use ginger that is soft and not too fibrous. As regards the green chillies, I have used the least hot variety of it. Discard the stem and seeds of green chilies. They are not good for health. To make the grinding easy and to improve the shelf life of ginger chili paste, add oil. Any flavourless oil shall do the needful. DO NOT ADD WATER. Vinegar can be added but it affects the flavour of ginger chili paste.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
