I used canned coconut milk for this recipe, but you can substitute any milk you prefer. While mace is a perfect and fragrant seasoning for this dish, it can occasionally be difficult to find in our local stores.
You can use ground nutmeg in place of the mace, just be aware that mace is a slightly stronger spice. If you use nutmeg, you may want to increase the amount used.
Savoy cabbage is our preference for this dish. It has a nice texture and a softer leaf. Feel free to use a green or Napa cabbage if you prefer.
