  • In a bowl combine the fresh grated coconut and 1½ cups of water and let it soak for a minute.  Prepare another bowl with a strainer on top.  Get a handful of grated coconut and press both hands to extract the milk over the strainer or you can use a clean cloth to wrap the grated coconut and squeeze to extract the milk and so on.  Strain the coconut milk in a sauce pan just to make sure that it is free from grated coconut.

I’ve spent so much time in our kitchen even though I don’t have formal cooking education, but I cook and bake a lot. I have a large collection of cookbooks. I love watching Foodnetwork Channel & YouTube cooking videos it helps me develop my skills. To my fellow home cooks and home-bakers we should keep doing what we love and enjoy being creative in the kitchen. I also love taking photos of my food but, I’m not a good photographer, so I just hope and pray that my food will make you hungry, so you won’t notice my bad composition LOL. And lastly, please have mercy on my poor writing skills, English subject has always giving me a headache and as I compose this bio I can feel a migraine starts to kick in LOL.
