Ingredients to make garlic paste

  • Fresh garlic - 100 grams
  • Salt - 1 tbsp
  • Vegetable oil - 1 tbsp

Making garlic paste

  • Put garlic cloves in the blender.
  • Add some salt. I am using rock salt.
  • Blend for a few seconds.
  • The garlic may be coating the sides of the jar.
  • Scrape the sides of the mixer jar with a plastic spatula or a spoon.
  • Add 1 tbsp olive oil or any vegetable oil. Blend again till the paste is as fine as you want.
  • Stop, scrape and mix in between if needed before blending again. As the
    garlic contains some water, you may not need to add more than a tbsp of oil. But if needed, you may add another tablespoon of oil or vinegar. No water should be added at any time if you want to keep the paste longer than two days.
  • Do not make the paste too liquid. Store this ready garlic paste in a jar and keep it in the fridge.

It will keep for more than a month. Use this garlic paste as and when needed.
