I could not find coconut cream so I used so good quality thick coconut milk. This is easy to make and it has a great flavor with the curry powder and coconut milk. Served with brown rice.

Oh my goodness...this is so delicious! We just love coconut and curry together, which saw to doubling the amount of Madras curry. I always have the coconut cream in a block and add water to thin. I did not strain it and it was perfect. Thank you so much for sharing your keeper recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

I wish I could take good pics. This is way creamier and better than the pic looks. Kind of the consistency of a potato soup creaminess. I chickened out and only put in about 3/4 tablespoon of curry. Next time I'm gonna up that amount. This is really a great change from the usual black beans and rice. The recipe states one 14 ounce can of coconut cream, which can not be found here. Not sure if it is even produced. So I went back to the city and got the proper amount and I'm so glad I did. The smell of the curry and coconut is wonderful. Yummy!
