Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Peel the taro root and slice it into thin strips.
In a plate combine coconut oil, milk and salt and toss the taro strips in the mixture. It might seem like there is too much liquid, but Taro tends to get really dry so this amount is necessary.
Place the taro strips on a cookie sheet, sprinkle the coconut flakes on top and mix well with your hands.
Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the taro fries and bake for an additional 15 minutes the coconut coating starts becoming golden and crispy.
Serve as a delicious snack or a salad accompaniment.
