This recipe calls for a ginger-garlic puree. You’ll usually find it bottled in the produce section of most grocery stores. If you’re unable to find it, feel free to use fresh ginger and fresh garlic. Finely chop them, and add them to your crockpot. It takes a little more prep work, but it adds tons of incredible flavor.
