Hi Aunty Yochana,

I'm always confused between grated coconut and dessicated coconut. Wat's the diff? And where can I buy them?

Hi Ms. Tan,

Grated coconut are fresh grated coconut while dessicated coconut are dehydrated coconut where they come in tin form or plastic packaging.

Hi Mrs. Tan,

It's easy for us to buy grated coconut in Singapore and Malaysia. Even NTUC sells the grated coconut in pkts by Heng Guan.

Hi Yochana,
Thank you for the very superb website. May I ask if i can substitute dessicated coconut for grated coconut, as grated coconut is not available in Germany...thank you very much. Regards,
annie

Hi annie,

if you want to use desiccated coconut, soak it with some evaporated milk first and then use it as fresh grated coconut.

yes you can use fresh milk but evaporated milk is more creamy and fragrant. Happy Baking.
