What Do I Provide?
Chicken, fresh garlic, fresh ginger, plain yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, tomato paste, sugar, water, milk and butter
Freezing tomato paste- There is no need to waste excess tomato paste, you can easily freeze it for another time! All you have to do once you have taken the amount you need is:
1. Open the bottom end of the can (so now both the top and bottom are cut through).
2. Push the lid in, (so the paste slides out of the bottom of the can) and into a plastic freezer bag.
3. Freeze and have on hand for you next Kaveli products!
Peeling ginger- Ginger is actually very easy to peel and you waste very little when you use the edge of a spoon. The skin is thin and scrapes off easily. Some people use a common vegetable peeler to peel ginger. However, using a peeler will create more waste than is necessary. When using a spoon, simply scrape the ginger with the inside of the spoon, making sure you get the edge of the spoon into the crevices of the ginger.
Freezing ginger- You can also freeze any extra ginger! Here are two different ways you can do it:
FREEZE READY TO USE: Peel and chop the ginger root all at once. Then place the chopped ginger in a sheet of plastic wrap and freeze. It will be ready to go when you need it for your next Kaveli product!
FREEZE WHOLE: Place the entire root in a freezer bag (we like to peel it first). When needed, just take it out of the freezer and grate what you need. Freezing will darken the flesh just a little, but it will not hurt the flavor and actually makes it easier to grate or chop.
Variation: Make Tandoori Kebabs!
Just substitute the chicken thighs and legs with chicken breasts. Cut the breasts into pieces before marinating, and then skewer them with some onions and peppers! (You can also try this with Shrimp, Tofu or Paneer).
