A question about a recipe: Shrimp and Pork Dumplings

I have a question about the ingredient "ginger" on the recipe "Shrimp and Pork Dumplings" from edamame2003. -- It asks for 1/8 cup ginger, but ginger how? Chopped fine? Diced coarse? Thank you....

thanks for trying the recipe. first off, 1/8 cup may be too much--1 Tablespoon is probably a better amount. i would just chop that amount, and throw in a blender with everything else.

Step 1 of the recipe says to blend the ginger with some other ingredients to make a smooth paste. It therefore probably doesn't matter how you prepare the ginger, depending on the quality of your blender. However, a safe bet is to grate the ginger then add it to the blender, to help make the 'smooth paste'. Good luck, and enjoy the delicious dumplings!
