  1. Do you think it’s ok if I use minced garlic cloves instead of the garlic paste?

    1. Vijaya Gupta says:

      Yes, it is perfectly okay to use finely minced garlic cloves. Actually, it all depends upon individual preferences. Minced garlic will be present while chewing, which is not so if the garlic is in paste form. So you may choose as per your liking.
      Hope this helped!
      Cheers! 🙂
