Prepare the Fresh Herb Yoghurt Drizzle

  • Pick the mint and coriander leaves, dispose of the stalks, finely chop the leaves and add to a small mixing bowl, reserving a few for garnish
  • Add the yoghurt to the bowl
  • Squeeze the lemon juice into the bowl, catching any pips in your free hand
  • Add a splash of water to loosen as necessary
  • Season to perfection with salt and pepper
