Chilli garlic paste is added in many dishes to enhance the spiciness. Especially in pav bhaji! The ratio of chilli to garlic is 6 : 10. If you need more spice, go 10 : 10. You can refrigerate and use upto 15 days.

What you will need

Dry red chilli - 24 (or multiples of 6)

Garlic cloves - 30,peeled.

Water - About 1/4 cup.

How to cook


ak it in hot water for 1 hour.

You can deseed the chilli. But i did not. (If u r deseeding wear gloves) Soak it in hot water for 1 hour.


Once soaked, drain the water. Grind for 2 to 3 minutes using 3 to 4 tsp of water.


Add garlic to the ground chilli. Grind until smooth. Add water (only 2 teaspoons at a time) if needed. (Use as little water as possible.)


It took me only 8 tsp of water to get the right consistency.
