I've made this recipe a number of times and it is our absolute stir-fry favourite. I make batches of it and freeze it in portions.

Can you use skimmed milk instead of coconut milk?

Hey, Esther from the food team here! We'd recommend sticking with coconut milk and skimmed milk is very thin and will give the sauce a much looser texture. Thanks for your question.
