Finely chop mushrooms by hand or alternatively, pulse in a food processor to finely chop.


Heat 1 tbs oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, for 8 minutes or until all moisture has evaporated. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Drain any excess moisture and transfer mushrooms to a bowl. Wipe pan clean.


Clean and cut two roots from coriander. Place roots into a food processor, add green onions and 1 cup coriander leaves. Pulse until finely chopped. Add coriander mixture, mince, curry paste, egg and breadcrumbs to mushrooms Mix until well combined. Shape 1 tbs of mixture into balls with damp hands.
