HEAT oil in a large skillet and sauté the onion for a few minutes. ADD broccoli and carrot slices and cook a few minutes more before you'll add the mushrooms. Also ADD curry paste, lemon grass, coconut cream and vegetable stock and bring to a boil.

Let it cook for a few minutes until it thickens. Meanwhile coarsely CHOP the peanuts, you can use a mortar and pestle or a chef's knife. COMBINE the chopped peanuts with soy sauce and sambal to taste.

DRAIN the rice. If the curry isn't thickened enough, you can use some cornstarch. FINISH with the peanut mixture and serve with rice. Enjoy!
