Coconut cream into coconut milk

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Coconut cream into coconut milk

Hi ,
Just checking out a recipe that calls for coconut milk, but I have only got creamed coconut in...
Can I use one the same as the other please?

coconut cream

yes - just mix it with some hot water and coconut cream turns into coconut milk.

(my packet actually has amounts on the side but i'm not at home so can't check, sorry).

you have to smoosh it a bit with a fork to get it to dissolve ...

coconut powder

I'm hooked on the coconut powder that you can usually get in my local big Tesco - by Maggi - in a yellow box. Really useful, can be lobbed in a curry that is a smidge too hot, makes fab icecream, good to make coconut panacotta, good for cakes & baking - just add with the dry ingredients, brilliant in everything actually! Wonderful, versatile ingredient - buy it when you see it though, it sells out fast.

coconut powder

Yes, I buy that too. I've been buying it for years and it was really difficult to get at one time. My fish in coconut recipe uses this powder and I often use the same recipe for chicken.
As you say it's handy for anything, even baking and it is much easier than trying to use up a whole can of coconut milk when you don't need it all.
Fabulous stuff.

Coconut Cream Powder

I get this in a sachet, "Chao Thai" brand. 1 sachet of 60g makes 200ml of coconut cream, if I don't use it all I just pop into a small plastic container and freeze for the next time.
I get this from the Asian Supermarket, so if there is one in your area it might be an idea to look there.
As Linzechris says it is really convenient.

if you want a lighter "milk"
consistency just use slightly more water than it says on the sachet.

Agree this is a really useful product and try to have it in the cupboard all the time. Only two of us so much better than opening tins and you can make it as creamy as you want. x
