How to use homemade coconut milk?

The 1st extract if boiled will curdle so add this at the end of cooking, just before you switch off the flame.

The 2nd and 3rd extracts of thin coconut milk can be added to curries, gravies and can be boiled or simmered.

 

How to store Coconut milk?

Store 1st extract separate from second and third extract. You can always label it for your convenience.

Always store coconut milk in airtight glass bottle in the fridge. If not using immediately after making it, store this in the freezer. It stays good for about 3 months in the freezer.

In addition to that, before using the frozen coconut milk, shift this into fridge previous day, let it thaw and use it whenever you want.
