Yesterday I made a curry and now I have approximately 30mil of coconut milk left over. It has to be used by tomorrow. Any ideas?

Would rather something savoury and don't really want to do another curry.

*300 mil, not 30mil.

Add it to a cake - makes a nice flavour.

Freeze it until you next make a curry.

I second freezing it - very handy to have it to flavour something later on, when you need it...

Rice pudding with coconut milk is lush

You could make my favourite dessert: bananas in hot coconut milk.

Yes - freeze it.

I would also say rice pudding or bananas in coconut custard.

Freeze it and use it later, or freeze it then whip it up with some banana and vanilla for a sort of coconut slush thing.

I rarely use a full tin in a curry though and tend to freeze the leftover half for the next time, just pop a plastic food back in a cup, pour it in, tie it then fling it in to the freezer.

just saw the soup thread - or add it to roast butternut squash or sweet potato, with chilli and a squirt of lime, whizz it up, amazing soup!

I used some leftover coconut milk to make porridge the other day, with chopped mango - it was great.

Thanks all, they all sound yummy. I have stuck it in the freezer. I particularly like the idea of the soup.

Use it to make a marinade for meat, it works best with pork or chicken. Put a bit of oil in with it, seasoning and spices of your choice (can do a jerk, thai or indian inspired marinade). Put in the freezer. The marinade will do it's thing while you defrost the meat.

YY to freezing.

It means you don't have to think about it just now grin
