The soothing flavour, pleasing aroma and rich mouth-feel of Coconut Milk have a knack of warming the soul! This wonderful ingredient is used often in South Indian recipes, especially in Kerala. It is also a common ingredient in Thai cooking.

However, the use of Coconut Milk extends beyond being merely an ingredient. Slightly sweetened coconut milk is an all-time favourite accompaniment for Appam and Idiyappam . It is poured over the spongy Aapam and allowed to soak for a few seconds, after which the dish is enjoyed as such or with a spicy curry.

Mildly-sweetened Coconut Milk is also enjoyed as a beverage at times, as it has a soothing and healing effect on our body – to the extent that it can cure mouth ulcers. Coconut Milk can be stored for two days in the fridge, in a dry and airtight container.

This coconut milk is very healthy as it has the good fats and great for endurance athletes. I use it also to make Thai Curry and also to put it in my protein shake.
