  11. 1 teaspoon salt
  12. 1 teaspoon sugar

  6. 1 teaspoon sugar
  7. Salt, to taste

Instructions:
  1. In a large pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the chicken pieces, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and galangal. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.

  3. Heat a little vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté the spice paste until fragrant and golden brown.
  4. Add the sautéed spice paste to the pot of chicken broth. Stir well to combine and let it simmer for another 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Season with salt and sugar to taste.
  5. While the soup is simmering, prepare the sambal if desired. In a mortar and pestle or a food processor, grind together the red chili peppers, shallots, and garlic until it forms a coarse paste. Heat vegetable oil in a pan and sauté the paste until fragrant. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice, sugar, and salt to taste.
  6. To serve, divide the cooked rice vermicelli among serving bowls. Top with blanched bean sprouts, a few pieces of chicken, and a halved hard-boiled egg.
  7. Ladle the hot chicken broth over the ingredients in each bowl. Garnish with fried shallots and fresh cilantro.
  8. Serve the chicken soto hot with lime wedges on the side and the sambal for those who prefer an extra kick of spice.
