Tap any open mussels and discard those that don’t close. Put the spring onions, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, green chillies and coriander roots in a food processor and whizz to a paste. Add a splash of water if it’s needed.
Heat 2 tbsp groundnut oil in a large, wide pan with a lid. Fry the paste for 2-3 minutes. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce and lime juice and bring to a simmer. Add the mussels, put on the lid and steam for 3-4 minutes until all the mussels are open (discard any that stay closed). Serve the mussels scattered with the coriander leaves and red chilli.
