Menon August 12, 2004 - 12:00 ama bit apprehensive abt the use of thick coconut milk. will low-fat milk be a good substitute? Reply newlywed December 18, 2006 - 12:00 amumm….I live in a city that does not have indian stores. SOoooo…yes there are states many.. i may add…where there is a LOW indian population and therefore no indian stores to buy ghee. Reply Manju August 29, 2006 - 12:00 amI think you can substitute water for the coconut milk. Reply Shakkeela February 26, 2005 - 12:00 amWhat about using Palm oil instead of Ghee?
