Has a creamy milk texture perfect for curries, che, and some batter mixtures. Made by boiling equal amounts of water and shredded, mature coconut flesh until foamy, then straining. Commonly purchased, not homemade. Chaokoh and Mae Ploy brands are recommended; the first is lighter with a hint of sweetness, while Mae Ploy is nice and thick.
