1. If canned coconut milk is not readily available to you, you could make your own coconut milk by blending fresh coconut with water then passing through a fine sieve to separate the milk from the chaff.2. If you love heat then you could add some chili/habanero pepper to suit your heat tolerance. Add the pepper right before adding in the vegetables.
