We put the grated coconut in a food processor (I have used the Thermomix). We heat the water without boiling and pour it over the grated coconut. We will leave it for a few minutes so that the coconut hydrates well.
Then, we press the food processor at maximum power, so that the coconut and water are mixed well, we will obtain a slightly thick paste. We only have to pass it through a strainer or through a fine mesh to extract the milk. We can use the leftover to make cookies or cakes.
With what to accompany coconut milk with grated coconut
You can use this coconut milk recipe with grated coconut in countless recipes, especially Thai ones. If you need it to be sweet, you just have to add a little sugar to the mixture before beating it. In an airtight container it will keep perfectly in the fridge for about five days.
