      Australia has an abundance of fresh Asian ingredients, so I was able to make this delicious soup as written (even had fresh galangal). This dish has a wonderful blend of flavours, and a great balance of heat and sour. Used fresh kaffir lime leaves, and sambal oelek for the chili paste. Sliced the mushrooms because I missed the advice to quarter them. One comment -- I find it easier to follow the instructions when the order of the ingredient list matches the order in which the ingredients are used. Thanks for a great soup. Yummo!
