Assunta's tips
The volume of vegetables is up to you. I like to have a nice variety to add to the texture and taste.
I like to dice the carrot to be smaller than the pumpkin so it cooks through in a similar time.  To speed up the cooking process I usually par cook these two vegetables before starting the curry.
Also, I find It is best to add the fish sauce just prior to serving to maintain its authentic flavour.
