Think Thai Cooking and you immediately think of Coconut Milk! Ah, this marvelous ingredient... it is nothing short of magical. Its soothing flavour, pleasing aroma and rich mouth-feel rise above even the spiciest of ingredients, to give the dish a characteristic Thai touch.

In fact, if it were not for the use of coconut milk, the abundant use of garlic and spices might make Thai dishes a bit overwhelming – but this great ingredient balances all other flavours and makes a dish taste brilliant!

Coconut Milk is also used extensively in South Indian cooking, especially Kerala cuisine. You can make Coconut Milk at home and store it in the fridge for two days.
