Chef Way Making this herb sauce is a two-step process: pureeing the cilantro, mint, jalapeño, garlic, cumin and lemon juice, then whisking in the yogurt separately.

Easy Way The bright, cooling, yogurty sauce comes together instantly in a blender.

  1. 2 cups cilantro leaves
  2. 1 cup mint leaves
  3. 1 jalapeño, seeded and coarsely chopped
  4. 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  5. 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  7. 1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  8. Kosher salt
  1. In a blender, combine the cilantro, mint, jalapeño, garlic, cumin and lemon juice and puree to a paste. Add the yogurt and puree until smooth. Season with salt.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Serve With Chicken Tikka.
