  1. Place the cornstarch, sugar, and salt into a saucepan; stir in 1/4 of the coconut milk to make a smooth paste. Stir in the remaining coconut milk, and bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until thickened so that it coats the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish; refrigerate until cold.


  • Cook's Note
  • If you can't find canned coconut milk, you can make your own by pouring 2 cups boiling water over 4 cups grated coconut. Let stand for 20 minutes; strain and measure coconut milk.
