Salt and ground pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a large pan over low heat.
Add leeks and carrots. Stir well.
Cover the pan with a tight fitting lid and cook for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are just beginning to soften but do not let them color.

Stir in ground coriander and cook for about 1 minute.
Pour in the stock and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes until the leeks and carrots are tender.

Leave to cool slightly, and then ladle the soup into a blender, in batches if necessary, process until smooth.
Return the soup into the pan and add about 2 tbsp yogurt.
Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning again to taste.
Reheat gently but do not boil.

Ladle the soup into bowls and put a spoonful of the remaining yogurt in the centre of each. Sprinkle with the coriander and serve immediately.
