Not Ice-Cubes but Spice Cubes
Hi , here I am back with my Thursday tip No 2.The small cubes and the large triangular blocks that you see in the pic above are what I call my spice cubes. The small ones are ginger cubes and the large blocks are frozen blocks of fresh tomato puree. I make these every 2 weeks and use them in all my curries and gravies. They really speed things up when actually cooking. You can make similar cubes with garlic paste and grated fresh coconut. Add a little salt to the ginger and garlis pastes before freezing and they keep for months in the freezer. I use small ice trays which I got in Ikea. So each ginger or garlic cube is equivalent to 1 tspn of paste and each tomato puree block is made from 1 large tomato.
