Notes about recipe

Note from the author: “You will need a heavy-duty blender for this recipe.”


Peeling the ginger: Instead of a knife, use the sharp outer edge of a spoon to scrape off the skin until you see the yellowish root. This is even easier with a small spoon.

Alternate preparation

Fresh turmeric root: Instead of ground turmeric, you can use finely grated turmeric root. Turmeric will stain your hands, so it is a good idea to wear gloves when grating it (turmeric can permanently stain white utensils and equipment).
