Most of the time I don’t make it the normal way with coconut. I make it the easiest wayJ

Beat yogurt (about 2 cups-one and a half cup yogurt and half cup water). If it’s thick add enough water to get the right thickness you want. I don’t add too much water, because I like it a bit thicker.
Take one big garlic pod, a piece of ginger, one big green chili. Crush them.

Heat oil, adds mustard, and let it splutter, add cumin seeds, and add this crushed mix. Stir well for a couple of minutes then reduce heat. Add turmeric powder. Stir and switch off stove. Add a little asafetida too. Once it cools, add yogurt. Mix well. Switch on the stove and heat this in low heat. Till its hot, but never boil it. Turn off the stove and sprinkle a pinch of red chili powder on top.
