In a small skillet, toast the coriander seeds over moderate

the oil until shimmering. Add the toasted coriander seeds,
shallot, ginger, curry powder, sambal oelek, garlic, shrimp
paste and kaffir lime leaves and season with salt. Cook over

coconut milk and lime juice and bring to a simmer. Season
the soup with salt and white pepper. Ladle the soup into
bowls, garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with lime
