Hey Sarah,

I wanted to try this recipe, but how do you make thin and thick coconut milk from the canned coconut milk that we get here?

Sarah Naveen said...

Babitha,
I just add water to the canned coconut milk and make it thin..for a cup of thin coconut milk I take 1/4 cup canned coconut milk in a cup and add 3/4 cup water to make a cup and just whisk it .
and for thick u use a 50:50 ratio..But its just purely how you want it..there is no hard and fast rule as to the ration.hope this helps.!
