  1. In a large dry bowl combine the coconut milk, warm water, sugar, salt, and yeast. Set aside for 7 minutes.
  2. Add flour and mix with your hands. While mixing, add the coconut flakes and mix well.
  3. Set the mixture aside in a cool area, and allow it rise and double in size for at least 2 hours.
  4. Heat several inches of oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  5. The dough is expected to be sticky, so use your hands to grab and drop a little amount in the oil in the shape of a ball. Work in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan.
  6. Deep fry for a few minutes until one side is golden brown.
  7. Turn the fritters over and fry for a few more minutes until the other side is golden brown as well.
  8. Remove from the oil and repeat the frying process until all the dough is used up.
