I have a couple of questions about Malabar prawns for anyone that has made it-

1. What exactly is coconut powder? When I google it it comes up as either dessicated coconut, coconut flour, or evaporated coconut milk depending where you look and I’m not sure which it is

2. Do you add the whole contents of the tin of coconut milk, or just add the creamy bit and discard the watery stuff?

Thanks!

hi! when i make curries i use all of theconut milk can ( the watery stuff and the creamy stuff). if i dont use the the whole can i try to leave eqyal parts of each in the tin and use it soon. so for coconut: oil is my fav cooking oil. also good to make homemade chocolate.the shredded coconut would be the flesh of the coconut. it is grilled very nice ( from a whole coconut). you can get tge coconut shreds in fine or coarse. dry toasting in a dry pan adds flavor and brings out a bit more texture. i hope i did not add to the confusion. coconut oil is also antiviral, anti parasitical and antifungal. makes also w etheric oils good rubs after a hot bath or for sauna...happy cooking!!!❤

The coconut powder is actually coconut milk powder, mine is made by Maggi. It adds an extra creaminess quality!
The coconut milk separates in the can into thick and thin, and I mix it, using it all. yum. 🤩
