I made tom yum gai and green curried fried rice. It was delicious.
Can I freeze leftover coconut milk? I’m never sure what to do with the leftovers when I only need a portion out of a can.
Thanks so much.
Thank you for your questions. Could you please save some leftovers for me? I mean the soup and the fried rice, not the coconut milk.
Yes, keeping it in the freezer is a good way to save the leftover coconut milk. I would recommend saving it in a portion needed according to your favorite recipe. Then thaw it overnight in the fridge or place the whole container of coconut milk in warm water for a short period of time. When the frozen coconut milk separates from the container then place the coconut milk in a small pot and let it sit at room temperature or heat at a low temperature until it thaws.
After opening a can of coconut milk, you may store it for 2 to 4 days in the fridge, then it goes bad quickly after that. So the freezer is the sure thing.
I hope these tips help.
