Garlic ginger paste
« on: June 27, 2020, 05:16 PM »
What is, in your experience, the ideal garlic:ginger ratio for garlic-ginger paste? I've seen 50/50 and 60/40 in favour of garlic, but some users insist using even less ginger is better, if not doing without it entirely.

My other question is, when a recipe calls for 1 TBSP ginger-garlic paste, how many cloves of garlic would that be? Chefs rarely, from what I've seen, use pure garlic and ginger. They usually add water and/or oil to preserve the paste and make it smoother. The issue is 1 TBSP of pressed garlic will be vastly different from 1 TBSP of garlic with oil + water, the latter containing less garlic.

To be honest, I have never worried about the ideal ratio
