Therefore, here is the trick that I use to do when I newly started cooking Asian foods, its easy peasy idea for beginners, save a lot of time for hard working wife's Mothers whose family love Asian foods. It is also a good idea if you have many of these ingredients in fridge and you know they do not stay fresh for a long time but you can make it into paste and freeze them. Let us begin; I have these tomatoes for over a week now and some of them starting to get smushy mushy that is what I call it…hehe as you can see in the picture below...
A lot of you probably know, in Asian food these are the most ingredients used by a cook, almost in every dish;
• Garlic
• Ginger
• Onions
• Tomatoes
• Green chillies
• Coriander/ Parsley/ Mint
I cut these into half just like it's shown in the picture...
You can chop with knife or save time and put in chopper/blender
Now I know you probably be thinking paste is made now freeze it? But this is not how I make my Asian food paste...Put some oil in a saucepan and add the paste with dry flavour ingredients (whichever you like) most used in Asian food;
• Salt
• Red chillies
• Turmeric powder
Let it shimmer for at least 15mins until it started to look like in the left picture...
(I took some out so I can make brinjal vege )
When the paste is ready I let it cool down for an hour then divide into these little containers (-:
Now freeze them. You can make as many you want, if you are doing a job other then housework and your family love Asian food a lot then makes five-paste container, one for each day until the weekend comes. It save you time for making an Asian dish. I know for hard working wife/mothers who have to do double job it can be hard for them, just take one container out before going to bed and the next day it will be as fresh as you just made it. Do try this, let me know how the experience was and If you are making fresh paste then in the pan, add 2 to 4 tbsp oil, add 1 to 2 medium size chopped onion and fry them until they are translucent. Add the crushed ginger-garlic. Stir and saute until the raw aroma of ginger-garlic disappears. Add 2 to 3 medium size chopped tomatoes and saute until they become soft and mushy. Add all the dry spice powders. Stir and saute for a couple of minutes. Add your vegetables/chicken/meat. Garnish with green chillies and coriander.
