Who would have known the coconut would such an Indian staple? Let me rephrase and say I did not know that the coconut was used so commonly. From using it for poojas, drinking coconut water, and the use of coconut in cooking chutneys and curries, and desserts-it is used daily by Indians
Many Indian families have coconut trees in their backyards and they hire a laborer to go up and take down the coconuts a couple times a week. I consume coconut in a water form or in food on a daily basis. I love the smaller coconuts that you can break on the ground. At the beach yesterday, I cracked a coconut and then poured the water into my mouth while the waves were crashing into me on the beach. What a beautiful moment. The best is breaking the coconut for poojas for the Gods above. PRIS loves coconut!
