Bring to the boil, lower to a simmer and cook on a gentle heat uncovered for 25-30 mins or until rich and slightly reduced. Stir though the yogurt, coriander and ground almonds, season and serve with warm naan or fluffy basmati rice.

Thanks for your question. If you want to freeze this recipe, we'd recommend doing so before adding the Greek yogurt to avoid splitting. Add the yogurt and garnishes once defrosted and reheated.
