Method

place red curry paste and coconut milk in a large fry pan. on a low heat fry off paste to bring out flavours and to get rid of the raw taste, for 6 minutes. Add in vegetable stock, limes and leaves bring to a simmer. Add pumpkin. cook until just tender. Add coconut milk. TASTE at this point you can adjust the flavour. by adding a small amount of fish sauce this will make it saltier, add palm sugar 1 teaspoon at a time for sweetness. When the flavour is too your liking turn down heat and cook for a further 5 minutes. serve with brown rice or quinoa and chopped coriander on top. NOTE any vegetable can be used or added. Pumpkin is naturally sweet so needs less sugar added c
