   Using a mortar and pestle or a blender. Puree chilies,
   coriander roots, Galanga, lime peel, garlic, onions
   and shrimp paste. Add soy beans and rice flour and
   blend well. Transfer the soy bean mixture to a bowl
   and add eggs, Kaffir lime leaves, cilantro leaves and
   fish sauce and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon
   until well blended. Heat oil in a large flat bottom
   fry pan over medium heat. Meanwhile, dip hands in
   water and form the soy bean mixture into patties,
   about 1-1/2 inch in diameter each. Fry until well done
   and golden brown. Drain the oil on paper towels. Serve
   hot with dipping sauce. Dipping Sauce ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   Heat salt, sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan over
   low heat until the salt and sugar is dissolved. Cool a
   bit, add chilies and stir to mix well. NOTE: The
   mixture must be on the dry side. If the mixture is
       too soggy it won't be crispy when fried. The
       would be to lay the patties out on a cookie sheet
       air dry about 15 minutes or so before frying.
