Really easy to make and tastes great. I've used it to accompany Indian food and snacks whenever I want an extra kick.

I had a ladies' night at home and I served this as a starter with hummus and a creamy chilli dip. I didn't have chives but I used parsley and basil. It was fresh and tasty. The dips got us all in a relaxed atmospere.
