                         -----THE PEANUT SAUCE-----
    1       tb           Oil
    1       tb           Red curry paste
    1       c            Coconut milk
    2       tb           Sugar
      1/4   ts           Salt
    1       tb           Lemon juice
    3       tb           Ground roast peanuts
   Taking each mushroom as a rough circle cut towards
   centre in a spiral to make one long strip as if
   peeling an apple in one go.  Set aside. THE MARINADE:
   In a mortar pound together the galangal, lemon grass,
   lime leaf, coriander roots and garlic to form a paste.
   Place this in a mixing bowl and stir in all the other
   ingredients, mixing well.  Place all the mushroom
   strips in this marinade and leave for at least 30
   minutes. PEANUT SAUCE: In a wok or frying pan/skillet,
   heat the oil, add the curry paste and fry briefly
   until it blends with the oil.  Add the coconut milk,
   lower the heat and stir well until a rich red colour
   appears.  Add the remaining ingredients, stirring
   constantly until a thick sauce is formed, and set
   aside. Take the mushroom strips from the marinade and
   thread each one on to a satay stick. Grill/broil until
   cooked through. Serve with the peanut sauce and fresh
   cucumber pickle.  Little triangles of toast may also
   be served for those who wish to mop up more sauce.
