Garlic and Ginger Paste

Makes 675g of paste

Preparation Time: 2 minutes / Cooking Time: 2 minutes

If there's one thing I will always have ready in the fridge or frozen in the freezer, it's Garlic and Ginger Paste! It instantly adds flavour to any dish and is a core ingredient in almost every curry paste known to man! You can make separate garlic and ginger pastes if you wish, but I love the taste of both so just combine to save me time. I store a small container of paste in the fridge and keep parcels frozen, ready to be defrosted when I finish my current fridge supply. If using a clean spoon (so the paste does not get contaminated during cooking), it can last in the fridge for a month, and the parcels can stay in the freezer for a few months (but they never stay there that long!). You can also freeze the paste in ice cube trays, pop them out into a zip lock bag, and then use as required for an instant frozen flavour cube in your cooking.


  • 300g garlic cloves, peeled
  • 300g ginger, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 2 tbls salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

NOTE - You can use 600g of either garlic or ginger to make separate pastes.


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and grind for 30 seconds to form a paste.
  2. Scraped down the sides of the processor to ensure there are no stray chunks.
  3. Grind for a further minute to form a fine paste. NOTE - You may see ginger 'strings' in the paste. This is normal.

Store in the fridge or freezer as required. ENJOY! GPW
