Thanks for your answers, he doesn't really like anything to creamy or coconutty come to that, do you think a bit of low fat yoghurt would work, I think I've used that in a Tikka Massala before.
marscapone
You can use low fat creme fraiche, I have used that in curries. I've never tried low fat yoghurt, but I would assume it should be fine
