Notes

  1. Miso paste gives a depth of flavour and umami to the soup broth. If you can't get hold of miso paste, add 1/2 tablespoon more of each fish sauce and soy sauce. 
  2. Chilli garlic sauce is a very common condiment in Asian cusine. It varies in spice level, so adjust the quantity as per taste.  If you don't have Chilli garlic paste, you can add any hot sauce like Sriracha and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder to the sauce mixture.
