  7. If using, season with salt, garam masala,turmeric and currypowder. this will serve 4 as a light lunch or 2 as a main meal

  8. If you leave this to stand for a few hours and gently reheat but not boil all the flavours will be a little bit more intense, just a different experience.

  9. You can also blitz it down and serve as cucumber soup with a kick.
