  • 1 14 oz. can coconut cream


  • Pour coconut cream in a pot.
  • Start to heat the pot until the coconut cream starts to boil.
  • Adjust the heat to medium. Continue to cook until the liquid evaporates and residue starts to form
  • Gently scrape the coconut residue using a wooden or silicon spatula. Adjust the heat between low and medium. Continue to cook until the liquid completely evaporates. Note: at this point, only coconut oil and the residue is left.
  • Once the residue starts to get light brown, start to stir so that it gets cooked evenly. continue to cook until the color turns golden brown.
  • Separate the residue from the coconut oil using a kitchen sieve. The residue and "latik" is one and the same thing.
