In an oven-proof casserole dish, heat oil and butter. Add grated onion and carrot, garlic, cumin, coriander, turmeric, pepper and honey. Saute 10 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add chickpeas and carrot pieces, then pour in the stock. Bring to a boil, then cover the dish and put it into the oven. Cook 30 minutes.

Remove from oven. Whisk yogurt and egg yolk together. Stir in some of the hot cooking liquid and stir until well mixed, add a little more, then stir the yogurt mixture back into the casserole and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens. Stir in coriander and serve.
