Coconut milk fail - what goes?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I was making some curry and tried to make my own coconut milk. I bought a coconut, cracked it open, removed the outer husk, peeled it and grated it, covered it with hot water (about two cups for one cup of coconut) and then squeezed it dry in a cloth after a few minutes. However, the milk was very thin, no flavour, and even after about 30 minutes the amount of cream that had separated was very low, needless to say, without any flavour. So what do you think went wrong?

Pierce the eyes of the coconut and then place in oven at 325* F for 30 minutes. Crack it and remove the meat. Cut off the brown skin and cut meat into small pieces. Place in blender and add just enough hot water to be able to cover the meat and allow for blending. Then strain through cheesecloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
