I adore thai red and green curries, but I've just checked on the SW site and a tin of coconut milk is 39 syns!, even if I split into 4 meals, that's alot of syns.

Does anyone have any thai curry recipe suggestions please with a replacement for the coconut milk?

TIA MM

there is a green thai curry recipe in the magazine this month. I made it for me and my OH and it was very tasty.

I haven't tried this yet, but I read a thread on another forum where people (one of them was actually Thai and says her family cannot tell the difference...) use soya milk + coconut essence instead of cocount milk. You can use this as a HEx A and not even count the syns :)

Oops - sorry. Only just seen this.

Coconut essence is really hard to find! I ended up ordering it online from Jane Asher Party Cakes. See link:

JANE ASHER Party Cakes | Edibles - Flavourings | Coconut

It's quite expensive, but the bottle will last you years (any more than 1 drop of the stuff is overpowering...!)

I was just flicking though my book and discovered that canned cononut milk is high in syns, but FRESH coconut milk has less syns than skimmed milk!

Does that mean we could use fresh coconut milk as a HE????????????
