I’m hoping this is the right powder @Jo dunn and looks like what you use for malabar prawns as I could not find the Maggi brand at my Indian grocery shop.

It’s usually called coconut milk powder and dissolves into a paste with hot water @traceyross I hope it was tasty. Thanks @Jo dunn helpful as always!

Glad you found out beforehand. Go with the extra coconut milk, just add some of the solids part, bit by bit, until you get the right consistency xx @traceyross 🥥🥥🥥🥥

Thanks so much @Jo dunn it looks gritty as you mentioned and smaller in size than desiccated coconut. I’ll leave it out as it’s not very powdery looking. Thank you for looking at my photo and your advice Jo I’ll go with extra coconut milk. 💞

Sorry everyone else.. this is following on from Tracey and me messaging each other about Malabar prawns and we can't post pics in the messages!! 💕

If it's powdered coconut flesh it might be gritty, rather than smooth creamy, when rehydrated . Don't use it if it's gritty. It would ruin the dish 🤮🤮😂😂😂

just a thought, if it doesn't easily go into a smooth creamy consistenctwhen added to liquid, then it's probably not powdered coconut milk... in which case try the other suggestion of using the solids from a 2nd tin.. x @traceyross 🥦

Difficult to say if this is powdered coconut flesh, or powdered coconut milk, Tracey, but hey, it's all coconut, so I'd definitely go with this. Very excited for you! Happy cooking @traceyross 👩‍🍳👩‍🍳👩‍🍳👩‍🍳
