Minced garlic is garlic that is chopped finely, and is perfect for adding flavor throughout a dish. To begin, simply take a chef’s knife and press down on a clove of garlic, Remove the papery skins and discard. Slice the clove, then chop roughly. Rocking your knife back and forth, continue to cut the garlic until it’s finely minced.
This recipe calls for minced ginger, so it’s important to note that you can’t substitute ground ginger. It’s the oils from a fresh root that give ginger its characteristic fragrance and spicy flavor.
But the good news is that you can keep fresh ginger root in the freezer for a long time. If you don’t think you go through ginger quickly, just pop it into a freezer-safe plastic bag and simply take what you need for any given recipe.
Not only is there no need to thaw frozen ginger, but it is also even easier to peel! Another of those food hacks to take meals to the next level, this is a simple, economical way to add a fresh, tangy bite to your dishes!
If you’re in a pinch, ground cumin would be the easiest sub in for curry powder. Warm and earthy, aromatic cumin has hints of both sweet and bitter notes. A bit citrusy, it is most recognized for its spicy, nutty flavor. However, it doesn’t have the tang that curry powder boasts. Sprinkle in some turmeric to add a bitter, pungent flavor.
– Give your dish a bit of a kick by sprinkling in some chilli pepper – or for even more heat, add in some cayenne.
– Don’t forget to mix in the yellow curry powder before heating; the hot oil tempers – or deepens – its flavor.
