100g onion diced
10g crushed garlic
10g finely chopper ginger
100g yellow curry paste (Mae Ploy)
500ml coconut cream
300g cooked pumpkin, diced
In a pot, sweat off onion, garlic, ginger. Add turmeric and cook out (cooking dry spices helps release flavours).
Add curry paste and cook out for about five minutes, stirring to activate full flavours.
Add coconut cream and sugar and simmer for another 30 minutes, adding water/or vegetable stock if becoming too thick.
Once ready to plate, add diced cooked pumpkin. Fried tofu can be also added.
We also used a red pepper jam, which adds a wonderful sweetness to the dish.
