1 fresh coconut (not tender coconut)
Break the coconut shell, scoop out the flesh and finely
Using a mixer, blend the grated coconut with water
found in the coconut and
additional pure water.
The water should be carefully added in small quantities or
else the milk will
turn out too thin.
Strain the uniformly blended coconut slurry through a fine sieve, pressing and
squeezing the solids to extract maximum liquid. This coconut milk (first pressing)
is thick and creamy.
The remaining fibrous solids may be mixed with water again and more coconut milk extracted in the same manner, but it will turn out thinner with each pressing.
Coconut milk can be utilised in many ways.
