Coconut milk? Help

If I put this coconut milk in my Nice Curry, will it become magically smooth and unlumpy, or is there something wrong with it? It's the reduced fat kind

It will be fine, did you shake it before opening? Coconut milk separates in the the tin and the reduced fat one is noticeably more watery!

Pick out the lumps and temper them first after the spices so they melt and incorporate flavour. Then use the rest as directed by the recipe

In all Asian / Indian coconut milk recipies the fat has to be tempered well for maximum flavour

It’s just because it’s a bit cold the fattier part has solidified. It’ll melt right into the sauce when you add it to your dish

It always looks like that straight from the can.
