4 cups chicken stock
5 cloves garlic, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 inches fresh ginger, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 Tbsp. Thai green curry paste
2 tsp. whole coriander seeds
1 tsp. whole cumin seeds
1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns
3/4 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves and stems, plus additional 1/2 cup chopped for garnish
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
3/4 cup thinly sliced shallots
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 (4- to 6-ounce) boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/4-inch strips
2 Tbsp. Asian fish sauce (nam pla)
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. brown sugar
1 jalapeņo, sliced into rings (optional)
1 small tomato, seeded and diced, for garnish

In a large heavy-bottom pot over high heat, combine chicken stock, garlic, ginger, curry paste, coriander, cumin, peppercorns and cilantro. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Strain broth over a bowl through a fine-mesh sieve; discard solids. Return broth to pot; add coconut milk, shallots, mushrooms and chicken. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine fish sauce, lime juice, brown sugar and jalapeņo, if desired; stir until sugar is dissolved, then add mixture to soup. Garnish with tomato and cilantro; serve hot.
