Heat your pan in low heat, throw in the squeezed milk, and stir slowly. 4. Watch your pan, you can’t leave a coconut milk under heat as it might burn, more than half an hour later, depending on the amount of coconut milk, you’ll notice that the coco curd will start to form, and if you look closely you can see the oil that starts to seep out. 5.
