Do you love eating Indian food but hate how much time you spend cooking it? I’m going lớn let you in on a secret (I sound lượt thích an infomercial, lol)… cooking Indian food can be easy! I’m here to help!

The secret to lớn easy Indian cooking is to spend a bit of time preparing essentials in advance. I promise, if you vày that, daily Indian cooking will be a breeze.

If you prepare the following in advance, all you’ll likely need to vày on the day of cooking is to add spices to a dish:

onion masala ginger paste garlic paste and this green chilli paste

Why make this Green Chilli Paste?

Not only will this paste simplify daily Indian cooking, but it’s also a great way to preserve green chillis. Whenever I go lớn the Indian grocery store, I stock up on green chillis, & if I don’t use them fast enough, they start khổng lồ get moldy or soggy.

By blending and then freezing green chillis, you can store and use them for months khổng lồ come!

How khổng lồ Store and Use Green Chilli Paste:

After blending the green chillis with oil, I store them in 1 teaspoon cubes. I lượt thích using this tiny cube silicone tray for green chilli paste & garlic paste and ginger paste. Knowing that each cube is equal lớn 1 teaspoon makes it easy to use in recipes. My guess is that 1 teaspoon of this paste is equal lớn about 2 green chillis. If you prefer less spicy food, you can always fill the cube half-way.

But first… a Warning!

Do not attempt lớn make green chilli paste without wearing gloves!

I always wear disposable food-grade gloves when handling large amounts of chillis. (Bonus, you can use these gloves to màu sắc your hair too… ahem, possibly speaking from experience, will neither confirm nor deny, lol).

How to make Green Chilli Paste:

Use whatever green chilli you’d like. I’m using small Indian chillis (available at any Indian grocery store).

*

Put on some gloves (crucial!) and remove the stems. Add the chillis to the food processor along with some oil và blend, blend, blend!

You’ll notice that this green chilli paste more closely resembles minced chillis than “paste,” which is fine. I prefer not to add water(as it will cause splatters when it meets hot oil) or other ingredients (some showroom cilantro or ginger) lớn this “paste.”

Spoon the paste into this tiny cube silicone tray. I really lượt thích this silicone tray because each cube holds 1 teaspoon worth of paste.

If you don’t want to get the tray, you can also freeze this paste in a ziplock bag và then flatten the bag so that the paste in a thin layer – that way, it’ll be easy to lớn break off however much you need. I did this prior to using the cubes, but really do prefer the cubes.

*

Once the paste has frozen, pop out the cubes (it’s easy), store it in a ziplock bag or a glass container, và keep it in the freezer.

How to use Green Chilli Paste:

When a recipe calls for green chilli, use the paste in its place. That’s it! Again, I’d say 1 teaspoon of this paste is equal to lớn 2 small green chillis.
