To make the dressing, whisk the yogurt with saffron and set it aside for a day.
The next day whisk in the lemon juice and salt.
In a small frying pan over high heat, warm the olive oil, pop the mustard seeds, and fry the Kari leaves. Transfer to the yogurt and whisk together. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
