How to make it
- * If you don't feel like doing all the chopping, GRATING your larger ingredients works very well too.
- In a non reactive mixing bowl add your yogurt and sour cream.
- Mix well
- Heat a small frying pan and when hot, toast the cumin seeds until they release aroma and are slightly singed ( dont burn them please)
- Add the roasted cumin seeds and the remaining ingredients to the yogurt mix.
- WASH your hands CLEAN :)
- Using your primary hand, mush the ingredients together for a good 3-4 mins
- This lets all the flavors intermingle
- Let it sit in the fridge for about 30 mins
- Serve and enjoy, its a very cooling and soothing dish
