Add the rice to a medium pot with plenty of water (approx. 4 times) and a pinch of salt

Combine the ginger, chilli (careful, adjust to your preferred hotness), garlic and salt to taste in a pestle and mortar to form a spice paste (alternatively use a blender)

Mix the remaining yoghurt, spice paste, turmeric, cumin, paprika and 1 tsp (2 tsp) of sugar to form a marinade
