On one side we have an array of peeled, shelled, cut, cleaned, cellophane wrapped, neatly labelled vegetables and meat.. processed, treated, attractively packaged frozen foods... ready-to-make mixes, powders, sauces.. what have you! ... And on the other is the old school way of doing things- washing, peeling, chopping, grinding... authentic, traditional and charming to taste buds and not to forget the purse strings!
Well, me and my husband decided to take Zen into our hands! We thought- Hmph- this commercialization is making us all lazy, and at that too at a cost (literally). Why buy Ginger- Garlic paste in a bottle, when you can make pure unadulterated GG paste by the peeling and grinding yourself- and save money as well?
