            -1/3 pounds each
       4    Shallots sliced
       2    Garlic cloves, sliced
       1 tb Ground coriander
       3    To 7 fresh hot red chiles,

   Split open the game hens from the breast side and flatten them out
   into a butterfly shape.  Discard loose skin and fat.  Broil the hens
   for 3 minutes on each side.
   
   Process the shallots, garlic, coriander, chile, ginger, turmeric,
   salt, lime juice and 1/2 cup of the coconut milk to a smooth sauce.
   Marinate the hens in the sauce for 15 minutes.
   
   Put the hens in a large skillet and cook over moderate heat for 10
   minutes uncovered.  Then add the remaining coconut milk and the lemon
   grass. Bring to a boil and cook for 30 minutes, basting occasionally,
   until the hens are tender and almost all the liquid has evaporated.
   
   Serve warm.
   
   Serves 4.
