  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Place all curry sauce ingredients together in a food processor or blender . Blend well to create a fragrant Thai yellow curry sauce. Alternatively, you can simply mince everything well and combine together in a bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Add vegetable oil to a wok or medium-sized pot, then pour in curry sauce. Add 1/2 cup water, plus lime leaves, stirring to incorporate. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
  4. Step 4

    Add pumpkin and sweet potato. When curry is bubbling, reduce heat to medium or medium-low heat (just hot enough to keep curry simmering). Add snow peas, if using, and stir occasionally.
  5. Step 5

    Cover curry and allow to simmer 8 to 10 minutes, or until vegetables are soft enough to poke through with a fork.
  6. Step 6

    Taste test curry, adjusting salt level to suit your taste. Add fish sauce, salt, soy sauce, sugar, lime juice, or chile until desired taste is reached.
  7. Step 7

    Transfer curry into a serving dish or into individual bowls. Drizzle remaining 1/4 can of coconut milk over and top with a final sprinkling of fresh cilantro or basil. Fresh cut red chile can also be sprinkled over. Serve with Thai jasmine rice .
