Heat oil, add shallots, bay leaves, curry leaves and rice, and stir over medium heat until the rice turns translucent.

Add the coconut milk, salt, and peas and bring to a boil until most of the liquid is absorbed.

Reduce heat to very low, cover, and cook for a few more minutes, being vigilant that the rice does not scald at the bottom.

Remove bay and curry leaves and stir in the cilantro, mint, and chilies.

Fluff up with a fork, garnish with lime wedges if desired and serve immediately.
