In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add sweet potatoes, garlic, ginger, coriander seeds and curry paste; cook for 1 minute. Add coconut milk and broth; bring to boil.

Reduce heat; cover and simmer just until sweet potato is fork-tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Season with salt.

In blender or food processor, purée mixture until smooth, adding more broth if necessary for desired consistency. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and frozen for up to 3 months.)

Divide hot soup among bowls. Top with sprinkle of Dukkah. Garnish with fresh cilantro and drizzle with lime juice.
