Serves 3-4
  • 30 ml peanut oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 red chillies, seeded and sliced into rings
  • 3 shallots, finely chopped
  • 225 gr/8oz button mushrooms thickly sliced
  • 150 ml coconut milk
  • 30 ml chopped fresh coriander
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Heat a wok until hot, add the oil and swirl it around.
  2. Add the garlic and chillies and stir-fry for a few seconds.
  3. Add the finely chopped shallots and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until softened.
  4. Add the mushrooms and stir-fry for 3 minutes.
  5. Pour the coconut milk and bring to a boil.
  6. Boil rapidly over high heat until the liquid reduced by half and coats the mushrooms.
  7. Taste and adjust the seasonning.
  8. Sprinkle over the coriander and toss gently to mix.
  9. Serve at once.
