Very watery - poor product.

I've been cooking with coconut milk for years and I've never come across such a terribly watery coconut milk before. I thought perhaps it was just one bad can - nope, unfortunately the other two I bought were the same.

Both the canned coconut milk and canned coconut cream products are absolutely inedible and awful. They're at least half liquid and the cream part seems to dissolve into pure oil, when cooked. It does NOT taste like any form of coconut milk we've ever had, does not cook like it, and it will ruin your dish and turn it into a watery oily mess that tastes repulsive. DO NOT BUY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.

Changed supplier?

Agree - not sure what has changed but had separated in can into off-putting mess. Threw it away - no amount of shaking sorted this out.

This has been a staple of our mid week Thai curry for ages. Recently we have noticed that it now separates at low temperatures and is no longer creamy. Oily and unpleasant. We have changed brands. Very disappointed.

Cook's Note A delicious Thai curry requires an authentic curry paste as its base. Unless you are going to make your own, try to buy a good-quality one that has been made in Thailand. Variation Swap the prawns for chicken or tofu if you prefer.

Lisa's Tip: This recipe is so simple but gives a huge flavour boost. The rice gets a slightly sweet and nutty flavour so its a perfect complement to Asian cooking. If you are making a curry, fish, spicy stir fry or even a roast chicken, this rice will be a great side!
