Notes

(1) Methi (Kasuri Methi) is dried fenugreek leaves and can be purchased at some supermarkets (eg ASDA) or any Indian outlet.
(2) Dilute the c46 base sauce with 200 ml of water and heat before use. If defrosted from frozen, warm and briefly blend to restore the original colour and consistency.
