- Add ½ cup of coconut cream or milk and 2 fresh red chillies, slit length ways, salt to taste and enough water to cover the meat.
- Bring to a quick boil, then simmer over low heat, covered with a lid, for length of time required to cook the cut and choice of meat until tender. Gravy should be reduced and thick.

- Make toasted coconut by using fresh frozen coconut defrosted and pan fried until it turns a nutty dark golden brown. Cool then either crush in a spice blender or use mortar ad pestle. Alternatively place the defrosted coconut on a lightly greased baking tray and bake in oven at a low temperature until golden brown.
