Step 1: Here We Go.....

How to make coconut milk----->

  1. Break the coconut.
  2. Remove the outer shell, take care not to cut your fingers since the outer shell of coconut is very hard and acts like a sharp tool when broken.
  3. Wash the raw coconut pieces with clean water and cut into the smaller pieces.
  4. Grind the small pieces in a mixer jar, add some cow milk, if required for proper grinding.
  5. Put the grounded coconut in a cloth and twist and separate the coconut milk and the coconut fibers.Keep them separately.
  6. Now we got the coconut milk and ground coconut powder (fibers).

Step 2: STEP-2:Making Koftas

How to make KOFTAS---------->

  1. Take grounded coconut powder (fibers),
  2. Add a pinch of salt.
  3. Add a little black pepper powder.
  4. Add a small quantity of corn flour to coconut powder.
  5. Make small balls or oval shaped Koftas and keep them aside.
  6. Heat the cooking oil in a deep pan for frying. Take proper precautions before doing heat cooking, wear your apron etc.
  7. Heat the oil and put the Koftas slowly and one by one in hot oil carefully to avoid oil spillage.It may take 2-3 step to fry all the Koftas, depends upon the number of koftas.
  8. Fry the Koftas till they are turned golden brown evenly.
  9. Remove fried koftas from the oil and keep on a tissue paper to absorb excess oil.

Tip :Add cornflour slowly to achieve the consistency of the powder, so that balls are made easily.It is very easy to make, difficult to explain :-p
