  1. wow good Taru. coconut milk is a part of our regular diet. the traditional way to extract coconut milk is as follows.. usually we mallus say coconut first milk and second milk. first milk is thick milk and second milk is thin milk.
    once after grating coconut we run it in a blender along with few table spoons of hot water. then we squeeze the milk or first milk and put the coconut mixture back in blender and addd more hot water and run again. squeeze once again you get the thin milk or second milk which you can add in gravies.

  2. We costal guys use coconut and cocunut milk in all our cooking….in veggies, curries, etc…

    agree with mitha..we grind it and then remove the milk….u should eat the coconut milk payasam…it is awesome…

    • Hey Regina, i will need to prepare it coz it wont be that easily available in Blr. If you know some place, lemme know.
      Il search n try preparing. will seek your help if needed 😀

  3. Hi Taru, thanks for sharing the recipe but I beg to differ here. I am a coastal person and have coconut in almost everything that I eat daily. I do not agree that we must heat the coconut milk. Infact it will turn unhealthy. One must consume it raw. Its equally tasty. We also avoid cooking all coconut milk based food heating a lot.
    If you want to preserve coconut milk for a longer time, I suggest you grate the coconut, grind in mixie , sewer it in muslin cloth. Put the pure coconut milk in ice tray and freeze. Thaw when you need it and use it.
