From rice dishes like pulao and biryani to curries and flatbreads like parathas and kulchas, two kitchen ingredients that are used extensively in a whole range of Indian delicacies are garlic and ginger. Both garlic and ginger are quintessential flavour-enhancers that are also added to dishes to up their nutritional quotient. According to the book, 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing House, “Ginger is a pungent root that is known for its ability to settle upset stomachs and alleviate nausea and can ease the symptoms of colds and flu, headaches, and menstrual pains.”

On the other hand, “Garlic is universally recognised for its health-promoting benefits; aiding the circulatory and digestive systems, boosting the immune system, lowering blood pressure, and fighting heart diseases. It even helps to eliminate toxins," notes the book 'Healing Foods'. Both ginger and garlic are used in the form of a paste in different delicacies. While the ginger-garlic paste is readily available in grocery stores, they might contain a few harmful additives. To avoid consuming them, you can always make a ginger-garlic paste in the comforts of your kitchen using just three basic ingredients.
