Spice up your valentine dish by making your very own Chili & Garlic paste. This recipe has been used by Indian families for generations. In fact, some eat it just with a chapati (Roti).
I like mixing it with tomato ketchup, then make cheesy toast. Basically, get a slice of bread, mix VERY little chili & garlic paste to the tomato ketchup, then mix and spread it over the bread then add grated cheese, sometimes I like adding sliced tomatoes and diced onions and then grill/broil! YUM!!!
Here is the recipe for the paste:
2 tablespoons freshly grated garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons chili powder
Add all the above ingredients into a food processor and grind.
The paste can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 months.
Other suggestions for the paste is to add it to a stir fry, sauces, very often I also mix a little with olive oil and pour it over a pizza and then grill/broil.
