So sorry to keep you waiting so long after the break but finally i am back with you now to continue our HOMEMADE RECIPES FEST and we will start now from today onwards with 2 recipes which is mostly used in Thai/ South Indian recipes or i must say that it's the key ingredients of the most recipes from them. so i will tell you today the easiest way to make COCONUT CREAM & COCONUT MILK at home. mostly people got confused between Coconut Cream and Coconut milk and sometimes Chefs also made us confused by telling about the variety of Coconut milk by 1st, 2nd and 3rd but let me tell you, when we made 1st batch, that made Coconut Cream and after that 2nd and 3 rd batch is just Coconut Milk. so now let me tell you all the process in details...
SSJ's EASY HOMEMADE COCONUT CREAM, COCONUT MILK & DESICCATED COCONUT
Coconut - 1(fresh) , cut in small pieces and peeled (we use only white part here)
First peel the Coconut pieces, we want only white flesh of Coconut to get more milky result.
Now put these coconut pieces with 1/8 cup of water and also with Coconut's own water in processor and on your mixer till it become smooth.
Now keep it in microwave for just 30 seconds to make it warm and let it stand for 10 minutes.
now put muslin cloth on a sieve in a deep bowl and put all the coconut with liquid in it and let all liquid go down in bowl. press a little bit slowly to get more and keep aside.
If want to use immediately, your COCONUT CREAM (1st Batch) is ready but if you want to store or want more fleshy cream then leave it fridge for 30 minutes. Excess water will go down and full cream will come on top. Take this cream from the top by spoon softly and you can store it up to 7 days in your fridge.
Now coming to to 2nd batch for Coconut Milk. Put leftover Coconut in same bowl and put 1/2 cup of warm water in it and let it stand for 20 minutes.
Now sieve it again same as above and you will get smooth creamy Coconut Milk and you can store it also up to 7 days in your fridge.
So job done in just few minutes... now you can also use this leftover Coconut for another batch of thin Coconut Milk or make some dessert with it. or just dry it to get HOMEMADE DESICCATED COCONUT which is much more fresh and good than which you buy from market.
