How to Make onnam paal and randam paal

You will get the coconut milk powder as a readymade packet in the market. but I don prefer that. i usually go for the home made one.Here is how u make coconut Milk..

Grate the coconut. Add 1 glass of mild hot water. Grind it to paste in mixie and drop the paste into a seiver. Squeeze the siever so that the milk falls off to another vessel. This is the onnam Paal.This should be always concentrated. Repeat the same procedure for getting randaam paal also.!!!!!
