Ingredients to make Coconut Milk

  • Hot water – 3-4 cups

How to make Coconut Milk

  1. Take Shredded fresh coconut in a grinder. Add a cup of water and blend it into a thick creamy mixture.
  2. If it’s too thick add ½ cup water. And blend again on high speed
  3. Pour the milk through a fine mesh strainer set over a bowl.
  4. Then squeeze through a muslin cloth or simply use a spoon and press the coconut mixture.
  5. Put all the coconut which is been strained out back into blender. Add 1 1/2 cup water and repeat the process. This time the milk will be thinner.
  6. Repeat the process third time using remaining water. This will be the thinnest quality milk which need to store separately and can be used for making curries. (This is optional. Use residue for making neer dosas)
  7. Use fresh coconut milk for making sweet coconut milk or curries.
  8. Transfer into airtight container and store in the freeze. Consume within 2 days.

My Tip:

Use fresh coconut for making milk. Do not refrigerate more than two days as coconut milk start losing its taste and freshness.
