Pound chilli, garlic and a pinch of salt to a fine paste in a mortar and pestle. Add dried shrimp and pound to combine, then add lime juice, fish sauce and palm sugar and stir to combine. Add to papaya mixture and toss to combine. Cut chicken into large pieces and serve with papaya salad and steamed rice.
