Directions
  1. Sauté chopped onion in bit of olive oil, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add chopped jalapeño (seeds removed) and minced garlic, couple of minutes.
  3. Add chopped carrots, white potato and shaved ginger. Cook for about 5 minutes with a bit of water added.

  6. Let it cool a bit then puree with yogurt.
  7. Put it back on the stove and heat, adding juice of one lemon and minced cilantro. To garnish, add a dollop of yogurt and a sprig of cilantro.
