Heat the stock in a saucepan and add your flavors 1 by 1: begin with the galangal, kaffir lime leaves, and lemongrass. Add the shallots, chili paste, fish sauce and lime juice. Then add the chopped tomatoes, Thai chilies and straw mushrooms and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the shrimp. When they turn completely pink, the soup is ready. Garnish with cilantro and spring onions and serve immediately.
