Chopping Ginger
1 of 1
Chopping fresh ginger by hand gives you a much better result than with a food processor. As when garlic, aim to chop your ginger consistently so it will cook evenly and distribute better throughout the dish. Ginger gives a distinctive bite to sweet and savoury food and sauces.

Peel the skin off of the amount of ginger root you would like to use. You can peel the ginger with a vegetable peeler or with a knife.
Using a sharp kitchen knife slice the ginger thinly. The thinner the slices, the smaller the final dice will be. Try to be as consistent in the thickness of the slices as possible.

Stack the slices on top of each other like a deck of cards.
Slice very thin strips out of the stack. Again, the thinner the slices, the smaller the dice will ultimately be.
Turn the new stack of thinly cut strips of ginger and cut down one last time, making the slices as close together as the first two slices. At this point, you should have perfect small dice of ginger. If for some reason the dice do not seem small enough, try taking another pass over the ginger, and chop until it is as small you desire.
