Thai coconut mushrooms with chili

This is a really nice veggie recipe, but comes with a health warning.. DO NOT RUB YOUR EYES AFTER CHOPPING THE CHILI PEPPER! Seriously..

Now what you need is:
1 tin of coconut milk (Blue Dragon is good)
1 red chili pepper
2-3 shallots
10-15 mushrooms (or however many you can eat really) chopped into slices
garnish: chopped coriander (if you like that sort of thing)

Chop the shallots into fairly thin half/quarter rings. Slit the pepper lengthways and remove all the pips from inside, then slice into thin rings. Now put these into a wok and fry for about a minute. Next, add the chopped mushrooms to the wok and fry for a few minutes until they have reduced in size and turned a light brown colour. Finally, pour the tin of coconut milk into the wok and keep heating it and stirring until it has reduced down to something that doesn't resemble soup. Serve it up, with a sprinkling of coriander if you so wish!
