  1. In a bowl combine the Yoghurt and Cream.
  2. Heat up a pan add the oil and stir fry the ginger garlic paste for a minute. Quickly add the turmeric powder, red chili powder and cumin powder. Stir fry for another minute on low heat.
  3. Pour in the yogurt and cream and mix the whole content well. You will notice the yogurt will get a bit liquid. The cream helps in keeping it all together or you would have curdled yogurt bits. Spiced Yogurt Soup www.masalaherb.com
