Garlic paste

From Cookipedia

This simple mixture of fresh crushed garlic is the cornerstone of many Indian recipes.

This mixture will keep for 3 days if kept in the fridge, or many months if frozen in useful sized measures.

To freeze, use a teaspoon to measure out separate 'servings' on to an oven tray, covered with grease-proof paper place the tray in the freezer and then bag-up once the garlic paste has frozen solid. [3 teaspoons equals 1 tablespoon]
