In a food processer add all the ingredients (except the yoghurt) and blend until all the ingredients are broken down and form a thick paste
To use immediately add 3 tablespoons of the mixture into the yoghurt and mix to combine
The paste can be frozen by putting the mixture into an ice cube tray and freezing for 2-4 hours – once the cubes are frozen, they can be removed and put into a Ziplock bag to be kept in the freezer for up to 4 weeks
To use the frozen cubes, remove the cubes from the freezer then allow to defrost and come up to room temperature before mixing with the yoghurt
Serve as yogurt sauce dip with homemade appetisers or biryani.
