  • 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) cumin seeds

  • 6 whole peppercorns

  • 1 1/2 cups (360 milliliters) plain Greek yogurt

  • 4 mint leaves, finely chopped

For the Sausages:

  • 6 hot dog buns

  • Chopped cilantro, optional garnish

Steps to Make It

To Prepare Sauce:

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Toast cumin seeds in a pan for 1 to 2 minutes, add peppercorns and toast for an additional minute. Remove from heat.
