Last week I was so caught up with my office that I didn’t get time to update my blog 🙁 . Here I am BBBBaacck !! :):)
This post gives you a step by step method to prepare this nutritious oil. Preparation of this oil requires immense hardwork and yess TTTTONS OF PATIENCE.. Thanks to my parents , who religiously prepared it just for me :).
All these photos were in my phone gallery and I had lost my USB cable in b/w 🙁 .Yesterday I got another cable and transferred all the pics I had clicked so far to my laptop 🙂
Okies, lets begin. Get fresh coconuts not the tender ones , but the ones which has a green outer husk. They are supposed to give good quantity of oil. Grate the coconut , extract the coconut milk using a blender/mixie :). Don’t throw away the leftovers of the extract, you can use it a a body scrub or even make awesome coconut burfi 🙂
Take a thick bottomed vessel (the vessel used here is Uruli, the traditional cookware used in Kerala which is made of bell metal (a variety of Bronze). Pour the coconut milk in and keep stirring until the milk gets thick. Once it gets thick, be careful about the fire as it can burn the milk .
Once the entire oil gets extracted take the vessel off the fire , and let it cool. Sieve the mixture to get the clarified virgin coconut oil. I BET you can’t stand the aroma , but like an ad line goes ‘“You don’t just buy virgin coconut oil, you earn it” !! 🙂 😛
