  6. Place everything from the pan into the blender. Blend until soup like consistency.
  7. Bring large pan to medium heat and add:
    • 2 teaspoon canola oil
    • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds

    • contents of the blender

      • ¼ teaspoons ginger
      • ¼ teaspoons garlic
      • pinch of thai chili
      • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
    • Pro Tip: If mixture is to thick add 1 tablespoon a water then mix and continue until you get the consistency you are looking for.
