Coconut



Growing up as Southern Bella, coconut is something that is used on a daily basis, be it in chutneys,stews or rice items it's a qunitessencial ingriedent for daily cooking, the easy with which coconut meat is scrapped and how quickly it was turned into a mouth watering concostion is quite a wonderful thing.Well on the other side of the world where I currently live getting fresh coconut is a matter of luck.Groceries stores here carry coconuts that are like years old. With many coconuts gone bad learnt to use alernatvies like coconut cream,cocnut milk found in Asian/Chinese stores. Well must say it comes close to tasting like fresh coconut.Today receipe is cocnut stew eaten with rice, quick and delicious to eat.Ingredients1 small coconut cream can or 1 cup of grated coconut2 tb Sesame seeds3-4 garlic podstamrind size of 2 quaters, add water and sqeeze the pulp to make it about 2 cupsa pinch Turmeric1 tbsp sugar
