My Notes:

  • Simmer flame while adding coconut milk.
  • Just when its about to boil, add thick coconut milk.After thick coconut milk is added, don't let it boil then it will start splitting.
  • You can even add raisins and saffron for extra flavour.
  • Mix well before serving.
  • It will look runny, but after resting time it slightly thickens.
