How to prepare?
Preparing coconut milk is extremely easy, the only ingredients you need here is coconut and water. Well obviously. Just take half coconut and chop it down into pieces, now your coconut milk is just one switch away and that switch belongs to your mixer grinder, so just grind the chopped coconut along with one cup of water, now again add one cup water and blend again.
Now take a bowl and spread a clean cloth over it, pour the ingredients of your mixer jar over the cloth and strain the liquid. The liquid collected on your bowl is coconut milk and you have full right to consume it as you have prepared it yourselves.
