  1. Step 1

    Place the chilli, shallots and garlic in a food processor and process until a smooth paste forms. Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the chilli mixture and cook, stirring, for 1 min or until aromatic. Add the vinegar, sugar and 3/4 cup (185ml) water and stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 mins or until the mixture reduces by half and is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Step 2

    Combine the chilli mixture and yoghurt in a jug. Season.
  3. Step 3

    Place the onion, combined cabbage, coriander, basil and mint in a large bowl and toss to combine, adding enough of the dressing to coat. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve immediately with the remaining dressing.

    Keep it fresh: To keep the slaw crisp, add the yoghurt and chilli dressing just before serving.
