Make the yellow curry paste by blending all the ingredients together in a small food processor or pestle and mortar. Add a little coconut milk until the mixture forms a smooth paste.

Heat a wok over high heat and add 20-30ml of the curry paste and about 30ml of the remaining coconut milk. Fry until fragrant.

Add the mushrooms and remaining coconut milk and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken and broccoli and stir-fry for another 4-5 minutes, or until cooked. Serve on a bed of rice, garnished with fresh coriander.
