Ginataang Suso'(Snail)

It's been almost 20 years since the time I ate Ginataang Suso' (Snails cooked in Coconut Milk). I never tried to cook this kind of exotic food so I asked my Aunt to cook it for me since she's really good with food that cooked with coconut milk.
If you'd like to try this great tasting dish, follow the instructions below:
Ingredients and cooking procedure after the jump.
* 1 Kilo of Snail (Suso)
* 1 kilo of shredded coconut
* 1/2 clove of Garlic
* 1 big Onion sliced
* 2 Tbsp. of Ginger strips
* 2 Tbsp. of Shrimp Paste
* 1 medium sized Green Papaya
* Moringa or Malunggay Leaves
* 2 Tbsp. of Fish Sauce or according to your taste.
* Hot chilli
Cooking procedure:
1. To extract the coconut milk, pour about 2 cups of water on a one kilo of shredded coconut.
2. On a caserole, put coconut mikl, with the other ingredients such as garlic, ginger, onion, shrimp paste, fish sauce or salt and bring to a boil until the coconut milk become thick.
3. When boiling pour the snails and boil again.
4. Next step is to add the papaya and moringa/malunggay leaves,
5. If you like it hot, put few chopped hot chilli. Don't overcooked the Papaya.
Tips: With coconut milk, if fresh coconut is not available, you can buy the coconut powder or coconut milk in can. But, fresh is still the best.
Tips: On how to eat the snails. Get a toothpick to take out the content of the snail. You can also use a fork.
