Chop and remove roots from green onions. Trim the base of the mushroom stalks, rinse in cold water, and dry them on a paper towel. Cut mushrooms into quarters. Carefully chop the lemongrass into 2 inch pieces and crush with a meat tenderizer to release some of the oils.
Bring a soup pot to medium heat and add oil. Saute onions for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Then mince the ginger over the soup pot, adding about 1 tablespoon. Then add the curry paste.
Next, add the chicken and cook until browned on the outside.
Carefully add broth, chopped mushrooms, lime leaves, and lemongrass stalks. Lower heat to medium-low, cover until chicken is cooked through.
Remove the lime leaf and lemon grass stalks. And add chopped green onions, fish sauce, and chilis.
Ladle soup into bowls and finish by squeezing lime juice on top of each bowl of soup. Serve topped with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
