Afiyet olsun...

I used my home-made Thermomix yogurt instead of strained yogurt. To have a thicker sauce I added also 2 tbsp corn starch while adding yogurt in TM Bowl (Add the corn starch after mixing it with a little yogurt so that it would melt) Thanks to Judydawn for the idea

It's adapted from this recipe with a few changes
Thanks to Mixman for sharing
