Garlic Yogurt Sauce (Beluli Thambli)

Wanted to clear some of bookmarked recipes and this came to me at first sight. I had bookmarked SJ's garlic yogurt sauce long back and had totally forgotten abt it. I tried and it was a nice combo even for plain rice - a mix of chutney and raita it is...totally luved the taste!

4.Serve with hot rice. This will go well even with rotis and pulav's!
But I cudnt resist myself so drank half of it myself before I served them with rice :)
