Tips
1 medium sized coconut will produce 2 cups of thick coconut milk. Grate the coconut and make a fine paste in the mixie using some water. Strain the ground paste through a muslin cloth or a strainer.The thickest extract is taken out first. Later on keep adding some more water to get thin milk. You can even use ready made coconut milk easily available in markets.
