1.  Place a small fry pan over low heat. Add all the ingredients up to black mustard seeds and cook for about five minutes or until they are fragrant and begin to pop and crackle. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

2.  In food processor or blender, blitz together the garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilli, nutmeg with a little of the oil to form a thick paste. You may need to scrape down the side and add more oil.

3.  Add the cooked spices to the garlic mixture with the rest of the oil. Blend into a paste adding more oil should you want a thinner consistency.

4.  Store in an airtight container, in the fridge. Will keep for several months, if not a year.
