Traditionally, Curry has a high fat coconut base. On a WFPB diet Calories from Fat are below 15% and ideally around 10%. This is why I don’t recommend using a full fat coconut cream as the base. A low fat coconut milk would be a good option for the plant milk in this recipe to get the subtle coconut flavor. If you absolutely need the rich coconut flavor I would suggest using 3 TBSP of Coconut Butter. Note- this is not Coconut Oil. It is whole dried coconut which is pureed. You could make it yourself – but it is extremely time consuming! You can buy some in the natural section of your local grocer. The one I use is Nutiva Organic Coconut Manna. This a decadent ingredient in terms of the fat content. Adding 3 TBSP of this to this recipe adds 27 grams of fat (24 of which are saturated fat – the worst kind)
