Use evaporated milk. Less calories, and the flavor is unbelievable.

Hello,

I personnaly use the soy cream as a subtitute. It's works very well and you can boil and reduce it like real cream; the flavor and onctuosity are similar to the cream...Very good.
I find this in organic groceries and stores...

Plain yogurt is used in many Indian dishes, and works very well indeed.

Coconut milk lends itself very well to curries.

Yes it does, for Thai curry, but I think they are referring to Indian curry.

I make indian curries with coconut milk all the time. My wife can't eat a lot of dairy so I substitute it. If you prepare the spices correctly in the beginning you won't really notice the sweet flavor. Gotta' toast em'

I just made Paneer Mahnki the other day and it was amazing.

India is a big country, and a lot of the regions use coconut. By contrast, cream is a relatively recent ingredient in Indian cuisine.

Exactly! India is gargantuan. I remember being shocked when I found out that there are regions in India that do eat meat. Previously I had thought that the entire country was vegetarian. That's simply just not true.

Though one thing can be said. You'll find maggi noodles everywhere, from the most remote villages to the top of mountains :P
