Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Makes ½ cup

Place coriander, chillies, tamarind water, cumin, ginger and lemon juice in food processor and process until smooth. Add 1 tbsp water and gradually add mint leaves, processing between each addition, until thick and smooth; add more water if necessary.

* Substitute tamarind purée, available from selected supermarkets.
