Coconut Milk–Thick and Thin Coconut Milk

Coconut milk is an important ingredient in many countries cooking. It is used to thicken gravies, served as a drink with sweetener, sometimes is served as a condiment. Coconut milk makes a great condiment due to its subtle flavor along with the mild sweetness. It will taste great with spicy Thai dishes.



Coconut - 1 cup (grated)
Warm Water - 2 1/2 cups



Add the grated coconut with 1/2 cup warm water to a blender and blend for 30 seconds
Pour the mixture through a sieve to a bowl
You will now get thick and first coconut milk
Now from the pulp above the sieve, add it to the blender and add 1 more cup of water and regrind it
Now repeat the process of running through the sieve to get the thinner and second coconut milk
Repeat the process of grinding and sieving with 1 more cup of water and re sieve it to get the thinnest and third coconut milk
Now you have thick, thinner and thinnest coconut milk..
