  • About


  • 70 g (2Β½oz) desiccated coconut
  • 150 ml (ΒΌ pint) warm milk
  • 1 small red chilli pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Salt


Soften the desiccated coconut in the milk for about 30 minutes. Squeeze out the liquid.

Put the chilli, shallots, paprika, lime juice and salt into a food processor and whizz until you have a paste. Mix the paste into the softened coconut. Use it as it is or, if you prefer, you can fry the mixture in a little groundnut oil.
