One pot chef- the recipe looks great but I`ve got a question. In Holland we can only get coconut cream, will that still work? Because it`s cream and not milk should I use less and dilute with water?

michael mcclure says:

Casey Tompkins says:

Can you use almond milk instead of coconut milk or does it change the flavor of the curry too much?

stephane Charbonneau says:

Looks amazing, only thing I would say is to add the coconut milk at the end, or even 5 minutes after it is done boiling and that coconut will really pop

Yessenia Figueroa says:
