    To cook the cakes, heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle, add the oil and lower the heat to a medium temperature. Fry the cakes for 3-5 minutes on each side on each side until crisp and browned.

    Whisk the yoghurt with the honey, salt, chopped ginger and mint in a bowl and set aside.
    Heat the oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds and turmeric and sauté until the mustard seeds start to sizzle. Add this spice mixture to the yoghurt and mix well. Taste and adjust the sharpness with lime juice if required.
    Refrigerate and use within a day
