    Cooked this recipe with a few tweeks, tasted lovely.
    Coriander seeds would not be milled properly, so used my spice mixer, next time I would just use dried.
    I replaced and used dried Cumin, Ginger, avocado oil, full almonds, and added diced potato and carrots.
    Needed to cook about 45 minutes instead of 30 to get the veggies cooked.
    Also substituted Tomato Paste with Tomato Sauce.
    Had no idea what to do with the Yoghurt and Lemon, so drizzle a tblespoon of yoghurt over the finished dish when serving, but did not use lemon.
