  1. Thanks for this! I usually use coconut milk instead of creamer for a non-dairy or vegan curry – it feels more like cooking with REAL ingredients. :-)

    • Great idea; I like to use coconut milk also. I wonder why they don’t…maybe they don’t always want to impart the coconut flavor…

  2. I’m thinking about using coconut milk as well. The light stuff doesn’t have that strong a taste, plus maybe all the spices will mask the coconut taste.
