Coriander Sauce by John Spottiswood

This is a common feature on Afghan tables and also similar to the coriander sauce you frequently find in north Indian restaurants. It's also common in Georgian cuisine. Serve it on top of the Chile-Coriander Chicken, or as a side to any grilled meat or vegetable. It is awesome!
