Prepare the ingredients
Wash and finely chop the coriander. Wash and thinly slice the mushrooms. Squeeze the juice of one lemon into a small bowl. Cut the other lemon into wedges and set aside. In a bowl, add the coconut milk powder and 450 ml of lukewarm water. Whisk till the mixture is smooth.
Prepare the curry
In a large saucepan or wok, heat 2 tablespoons of oil on medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté till it starts to brown. Add the khao soi chilli paste and mix well. Reduce the heat to low and add the khao soi curry powder. Continue stirring for 2-3 minutes.

Now add the carrots, zucchini, and baby corn to the saucepan and continue stirring. After 3 minutes, add the sliced mushrooms and let the curry simmer for 2 minutes. Add the lemon juice. Pour the remaining coconut milk into the curry and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add a teaspoon of crushed peanuts. Turn the heat off.
