Coconut Milk


- flesh of one large coconut
- 1\2- 2\3 water

Finely grate the flesh of the coconut. Add 1\2 cup of water and leave to soak for 30 minutes. With clean hands squeeze out the grated coconut into a bowl. Squeeze again to extract more milk. To make thin coconut milk increase the amount of water. Alternatively coconut milk can be made from creamed coconut or coconut powder. Creamed coconut or coconut powder can be bought from large supermarkets. To make the coconut milk just dissolve the creamed coconut or powder in warm water.
