1 cup fresh garlic cloves, peeled
1 cup fresh ginger peeled
3 fresh green chillies (serrano or cayenne)
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt


1. Place garlic, ginger, green chillies and salt in a chopper or food processor; blend until masala is fine paste.

2. Fill small freezer bags with small amount of ginger/garlic masala. Seal each bag and flatten so that the masala is about 1/8 inch thick. Store in the freezer.

3. When you require ginger/garlic masala, break off the amount you need and place the masala back in the freezer for storage.
