I struggled to get hold of coconut milk late last week, but managed to get some Monday.
Phew.
I had ordered mango pulp (Kesar) but had left it open for substitution in case they had another variety.....Two tins of coconut milk arrived instead :rolleyes: :

In what way is coconut like sweet fruit :dunno:
Besides, I loathe coconut. I bake with it for others, but if it was all there was to eat, I'd rather go hungry.

Mushy peas are also a very versatile tinned veg - just treat them as a dahl. Chopped fried onion, spices to your taste and add the dahl, sorry, peas. There are loads of dahl recipes you can try them with.

No shortages here yet though we have been making an effort recently to eat 'in season' veg to reduce our contribution to food-miles.

We had one delivery that substituted ground coffee with whole bean coffee - maybe a sensible substitution but I don't have a grinder :(

i quite like using it (the light version) in curry dishes - red lentil curry, that sort of thing, i dont use it for anything else lol and i dont like actual coconut flesh, or bounty bars
