    We used coconut milk instead of coconut cream. Worked fine. Tasted great.  -  18 Aug 2009


    Don't do what I did and use coconut MILK or you'll end up with a soup?  -  11 Jun 2012


    Very good recipe, but I'd like to try to clear up some confusion: COCONUT MILK (not cream of coconut) is what is generally used for Thai Curry bases, and I believe that was the author's intent here. You should be able to find it in the international food aisle (not with the mixed drink materials). Curry paste is much stronger than curry powder -- I'd recommend no more than 1 teaspoon of the curry paste to begin (maybe even less), and then add to taste. 1 tablespoon will knock your taste-buds off!  -  23 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
