Coconut Grater

Following my recent guest post at Nyonya Food, Bee from Nyonya Food and Rasa Malaysia asked Suz to take some photos of the traditional coconut grater which I used for my Kuih Bengka.  This precious grater was given to me from a dear friend.  I truly treasure it.   Don’t despair if you can’t use this utensil.  You can always find ready packed grated coconut available from any Asian groceries.

I want to ask the same question that Bee put up… does your grandmother or mother own one of this.  Post your photos here.

That looks kinda of scary.. lols.. I remember growing up and my mum going to the Indian Grocery store to get the man to do it via the electronic grater… But it’s so much easier now to buy ready made… not as good as fresh… =)

Yes I remember this scrapper. My grandmother gave it to my mum. We used it for years when I was a little boy. Learnt how to sit and scrap when I was about 8years old. Loved doing it for my mum.

Then years on and with the development of santan powder, coconut milk in a can, coconut cream cubes,… the scrapper ended up in the skip. Yup,,… one house spring cleaning day, we got rid of all these old equipment. In the rubbish bin.

These days I have a scrapper bought from Sri Lanka which attaches to the table top and I just keep turning on one hand while holding the coconut with the other hand on the scrapping blades. Does the job fast and efficient.

Thanks for the picture,.. memories!!
