Peeling Ginger

Peeling Ginger

The quickest way to peel ginger

Ginger is used in almost every curry that I make. However, it is also used across the world in different cuisines. It is a tricky thing to peel, especially if you have a central part of the root with lots of other shoots coming off it.

If you use a knife or peeler to peel it you end up wasting a lot, so the easiest and quickest way to do it is by using a tea spoon. It takes off a really thin layer of skin and it's great for getting in-between all the nooks and crannies ! The ginger skin that you remove is perfect for making a quick cup of ginger tea also.

A respected food writer and author, Anjula started cooking with her father at the age of eight. At that time the ingredients for Indian cuisine were not as readily available as they are now and Anjula travelled on the number 207 bus with her father to Shepherd’s Bush Market where they would buy a selection of spices, fresh fish and Indian vegetables. ​​ Utilising her cookery skills and passion for spices, Anjula launched her own business in 2010, Anjula Devi Authentic Indian Food, providing Indian dinner parties and Indian cookery classes. Anjula has created a range of authentic recipes for Manchester United, arguably the biggest football club in the world, where she is a consultant chef. A Brand Ambassador for TRS Foods, the world’s largest Indian food company, Anjula has also launched her own brand, Route 207, inspired by the bus route she used to take to the spice market.
