Coconut Milk has a magical effect on gravies. Its soothing flavour and pleasant aroma help to balance strong spices, while also giving the gravy a rich mouth-feel and a unique taste.
In restaurants, Coconut Milk is commonly used to prepare Goan and South Indian dishes, especially recipes from Kerala like the Vegetable Stew. Coconut Milk is also an essential ingredient for most Thai recipes.
You can prepare and store Coconut Milk in the fridge for 2-3 days. Not only is it handy in the preparation of gravies, mildly-sweetened Coconut Milk can also be enjoyed as a soul-warming beverage which has a soothing and healing effect on the body.
- Combine the coconut and 1 cup of warm water in a mixer and blend till smooth.
- Strain on a damp muslin cloth in a deep bowl and squeeze it with your hands.
- Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator and use as required.
