I used a store bought coconut milk in this recipe, but you can use the home made coconut milk which makes this recipe more aromatic!!
To make coconut milk at home, add the 1/2 cup of coconut in the blender, add 1 cup or 1 and 1/2 cup of warm water and grind into fine mixture. Strain the coconut mixture and use.
