In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry peanuts, stirring often, until golden, about 4 minutes for raw peanuts, 2 minutes for roasted. With slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel–lined plate.

In same saucepan, fry shallots, stirring occasionally, until crisp and golden, about 12 minutes.

Add mushrooms, garlic and pepper; cook, stirring, until mushrooms are tender and no liquid remains, 4 minutes.

Return peanuts to pan. Add rice, stirring to coat. Add chicken stock, soy sauce and 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender and no liquid remains, about 15 minutes. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in coriander.
