Ginger paste is an ingredient made from fresh ginger root. To prepare ginger paste, fresh ginger is peeled, chopped, and then blended or mashed into a smooth, thick consistency. Ginger paste is commonly used in Asian and Indian cuisines, to add a distinctive flavor and aroma to dishes. It can be used in curries, soups, and stir-fries to provide a spicy, pungent taste. Ginger paste is a convenient alternative to using fresh ginger, as it can be easily stored in the refrigerator or freezer and used as needed.
