Wash and peel all the ginger root.
Chop part of the ginger finely, part in juliennes, and part in large pieces. The finely chopped ginger is great for dals, julienned is good for garnishing, and the big pieces can be used when you need ginger paste.
Pack them separately in small bowls or ice-tray cubes. Freeze for 6-8 hours until set.
Remove from ice-trays/ bowls and store the frozen ginger cubes in freezer bags.
Use as and when needed.
The peels of ginger can be used to make ginger infusions, in masala teas, and in stock. If you have too much of peel, you can also freeze them separately in a freezer bag for use later.
