  2. Remove to a bowl mix in the greek yoghurt and set aside
  3. Dice the other onion and place into a medium-sized saucepan on low heat with a couple of tablespoons of oil.

  5. Add the coriander and garam masala and cook and stir for around 5 minutes until the spices have cooked out.
  6. Add the blended spice and greek yoghurt paste and cook for 5 minutes.
  7. Add the tomato paste and coconut milk and cook on a low heat for around 20-30 minutes until thickened. Once finished remove the cardamom and cinnamon sticks and blend a final time, place back into a saucepan.
