I use it when I've finished making "raw fish" and also sling it in curries and dahl, sometimes in desserts

hyborn, coconut cream has many uses, both sweet and savoury - try doing a search here on this Trademe MB using coconut cream as the 'Keyword' and Anytime as the 'Date posted' option - you'll find a number of threads with both ideas and recipes for using coconut cream.:-))

i use it as a substitute for cream in some savoury and sweet dishes...such as making fritters especially seafood ones, i use it in rice or sago for a hint of coconut...yummy

It hasVERY high cholesterol

uli, Nov 3, 10:00pm
Great isn't it? Cholesterol is the precursor to a hormone called pregnenolone, which has important functions itself, but is also the precursor to all other steroid hormones. Pregnenolone is converted to progesterone, a sex hormone, which in turn is converted into cortisol, which regulates inflammation and blood sugar, aldosterone, which regulates mineral balance and blood pressure, or testosterone, a type of sex hormone referred to as an androgen, which regulates libido, muscle mass, and plays other roles. In females, and to a lesser degree in males, testosterone is further modified, undergoing conversion to estradiol, a different type of sex hormone called an estrogen....

I always use half water, half coconut milk if I am cooking rice for Thai recipes

nunesy, Jun 5, 6:56am
An easy way to freeze it is to put it in icecube trays - then if you only need a bit, you can just pop out a couple of cubes and add to your dish.Really handy!I do this with leftover tomato puree/paste too, as I only cook for one and rarely use a whole can.

Do you just use it in place of cream!
