  12. :- 1) If u r using tinned coconut milk, avoid the three steps of extract milk. simply mix one cup water to the first tin of coconut milk and dilute it. Add this to the fried pineapples. When it starts to boil, add the second tin of coconut milk. 2) I normally add one cup water to one tin coconut milk to dilute it. But u can use more or less according to the thickness and quality of the milk.
