I have a question about the recipe "Sweet Potato Chana Masala" from MrsWheelbarrow. Full Fat Yogurt Substitute
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
So I can't edit this--but I need a sub for the yogurt. Would you use full fat sour cream or low fat greek yogurt? I also have a couple cans of coconut cream, milk, full fat buttermilk, and plain kefir. Which dairy sub would you use?

I would use full fat sour cream although I am sure a reduced fat yogurt would work just fine also. You could also mix a little full fat sour cream with low fat yogurt if you wanted the full fat effect.
low fat yogurt
I think lowfat (yogurt) has a greater tendency to curdle when heated. I would say full fat greek yo or sour cream would be fine
I ended up doing an experiment. I tested the lowfat on a bit of the chana masala. It did curdle, so I ended up using the sour cream.
