Heating the coconut
After draining the coconut water, place the coconut inside an oven at a temperature of 190 degrees Celsius until the coconut shell cracks. If an oven is not available, a charcoal stove or gas stove may also be used to heat the coconut until it becomes hot and crispy.
Once the coconut shell has cracked, use a hammer or the back of a knife to strike it firmly. This will cause the coconut shell to separate from the meat, making it easier to extract the coconut meat.
Chilling the coconut
Heating or chilling the coconut will make the coconut shell crisper and easier to remove. For chilling, it is necessary to place the coconut in the freezer for 9-12 hours.
Use a hammer to strike the coconut shell evenly. This method will cause the coconut shell to break and separate from the meat, eliminating the need for cleaning the brown shell beforehand.
However, this method requires time for the coconut meat to thaw completely.
The extracted coconut meat can be used to enhance the flavor and nutritional content of various dishes in a simple and convenient manner.
