Welcome to DC!

You could try using a cup of milk fortified with 1/4 cup of powdered milk or perhaps just the powdered milk mixed with some of the liquid already in the curry.

Good luck!

Welcome to DC! Coconut milk works. Or you can use almond milk.

That works, too. If you don't have Greek yogurt, you can take plain full fat yogurt and let it strain (in a strainer). The whey will drain and you'll end up with "yogurt" cheese that is about the same thickness as Greek yogurt. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to get the tartness of Greek yogurt.

If it were me, I would just use the double cream. But then again, I don't think there is anything unhealthy about fat.

Probably would be the healthiest choice anyways. Instead of replacing with chemicals.

Fat free evaporated milk is an excellent substitute.
