Ingredients

  • Fresh Turmeric Roots (हल्दी)
  • Fresh Ginger Roots (अदरक)
  • Lemon Juice (नींबू का रस)

Method

  • Soak ginger and turmeric in water for 30 minutes to loosen the dirt
  • Rinse with water 2-3 times to loosen all dirt and any dead skin.
  • Use spoon or vegetable peeler to peel off the skin. I like to use spoon as it can reach the corners of ginger and skin peeled is very thin so less wastage of turmeric and ginger.
  • Freezing roots before grating makes it easier to grate turmeric and ginger roots.
  • You can dry it on paper towel for longer saving time
  • You can also roughly chop into pieces.
