I have been getting lots of mails from my viewers to post homemade coconut milk recipe. I dont know why i didn't post this till now, because i have been using coconut milk in my cooking often. So here you go to the recipe..Watch out for more coconut milk based recipes..
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Makes : 1 cup of Thick coconut Milk & 1.5 cup of Thin Coconut Milk
Freshly Grated Coconut - 2 cups
Water - 1.5 cup
Take a good blender, add the coconut in it and blend them. Add in 1/2 cup of water slowly so it gets blended properly and finely.
Now pour this coconut mixture through a sieve. Press it with a spoon so the coconut milk gets collected in a bowl.Press hard to extract as much milk as possible. This is the first coconut milk which is thick and creamier.
Now add the remaining coconut pulp in the blender and add in 1 cup of water and blend again.
Pass this through a sieve again and let it strain. Press to remove as much milk as possible. This is the second coconut milk which is little thin.
You can stop at this point or go ahead and extract third coconut milk if needed.
