- To thicken yogourt, line a sieve with a piece of cheesecloth or thick paper towels folded into 2 layers. Place over a bowl. Put yogourt on top of cheesecloth. Cover and leave at room temperature until most of liquid has drained and yogourt is thick, at least 3 hours, or overnight if refrigerated. Scrape yogourt into a bowl. Discard liquid.
- Stir garam masala into yogourt. Taste and add maple syrup. If not serving right away, cover and refrigerate up to a day. Just before serving, slice unpeeled pears into wedges. Serve yogourt sauce alongside for dipping.
