Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and a pinch of salt, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened for about 5 minutes. Add potatoes, carrots, stock and 1 teaspoon salt, stir to mix well and raise heat to high. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cover partially, reduce heat to low and simmer until potatoes and carrots are tender for about 20 minutes.
Add potato mixture, brown sugar, curry powder, sh sauce, ginger and coconut milk to the jar of the KitchenAid ARTISAN Power Plus Blender.

Soup should be hot. Season to taste with salt. Serve at once, garnished with basil. To store, leave to cool, transfer to airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months
