Author Notes: Hara Masala is a green curry sauce used in the north of India with chicken or fish.
As by itself it needs no cooking, I decided to use it as a dip.
Hara means green and with its pungent garlic taste and all the herbs and yoghurt is a great summer dip served with vegetables or flat bread.
