"Persons living entirely on vegetables are seldom of a plump and succulent habit."

This is a rich, creamy side dish that goes well with roasted chicken, pork or fish. The curry flavor is very light with only 1/8 teaspoon of curry powder and if you want this more full bodied, add an extra 1/8 teaspoon or a touch of coriander or turmeric.
The canned coconut milk used in this recipe is a reduced-fat version. This will sometimes be labeled "light" or "lite" coconut milk. There is a big difference between regular coconut milk, at 45 grams of fat per cup, and the light version, at about 12 grams of fat per cup. In both regular and light coconut milk most of the fat is highly saturated, so I always try to use coconut milk sparingly.
I have used two coconut milk products and both are excellent. One is called Ka-Me and the other is A Taste of Thai. Both companies' products are widely available, but the light coconut milk is not found in every store. Ask the market manager to order some if you do not see it on the shelf.
