Green Masala


Green Masala is a mix of fresh garlic, ginger, jalapeno, cilantro and mint. In Indian cooking we always use garlic, ginger, jalapeno and cilantro; so blend all this in a blender and freeze it in an ice tray.  When the masala is frozen put it in a zip lock bag or a plastic container and use as needed.  You can also buy the masala from an Indian Grocery store or a Supermarket. You will find crushed Garlic and crushed Ginger at a Supermarket.
