I made this tonight following your recipe almost exactly. I decided to use a tablespoon each of fish sauce and sugar and as we are camping, and don't have all our equipment, to use the sauce without blending it to smooth. After it had simmered about 10 minutes, I added in some pumpkin cubes, then a few minutes before serving, added in some small broccoli florets, baby corn, red bell pepper strips and some fresh fish fillets. We ate this over rice stick noodles for a yummy Good Friday dinner thank you.
