Mix in the cooking oil and set aside. In a 3-quart saucepan, combine the coconut milk, broth, lemongrass, galangal or ginger, fish sauce, curry powder, lime peel and juice, and chilies or chili sauce. Set aside. Cut the chicken into very thin bite-size pieces, then mix with the sesame oil. Thinly slice the mushrooms and set aside. LAST-MINUTE COOKING: Bring the soup to a simmer and cook over low heat for 20 minutes. Add the chicken and stir gently with a spoon to separate the pieces. Then add the mushrooms, noodles and salt. Turn into a soup tureen or individual bowls and garnish with cilantro sprigs. Serve at once. Serves: 4 as an entree, or 6 to 8 as the soup course.
