Roughly dice pumpkin and potatoes. Cut the onion into quarters and mince the garlic.

Lightly sauté in 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add crab paste and corn, briefly sauté and pour in vegetable stock and coconut milk. Simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes and puree with a hand blender.

Fry prawns in remaining 1 tablespoon hot oil for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and arrange on wooden skewers.

Cut avocado in half, remove pit, and peel. Cut avocado flesh into cubes. Roughly chop up the eggs.
