You can reduce the coriander quantity if you wish, but it adds a ton of flavour in the absence of using any oil or butter. Quite a filling mug to tide over breakfast and lunch.
You can make double the quantity and drink a mug each during breakfast and lunch time - damages of 115 calories only, leaving you 375+ for dinner.
