In a dry skillet over medium-high heat, toast the coriander seeds until golden, about 3 minutes.

Shake the seeds constantly until fragrant. Cool and process in a blender or mortar and pestle, into a fine powder. Reserve.

In a soup pot warm the oil and add the onions. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally or until the onions are translucent.

Add the garlic, ginger, carrots, stock, sea salt, pepper, and ground coriander.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until the carrots are tender.

Remove from heat and stir in the lemon or lime juice.

Process the soup in a food processor until smooth.

Just before serving, garnish each bowl with a dollop of yogurt and a sprig of freshcoriander.
