So on World Coconut Day, try out some delicious dishes made with Coconut. Read this blog to know about them.
Coconut, as we all know, is a tropical fruit that we get out of the Coconut palm trees. These trees grow significantly in a frost-free climate. They are abundantly found in and around Southeast Asian countries. But do you know where and how it all started? Well, keep scrolling to learn the facts about this fruit.
History of Coconut
The initial cultivation of Coconut was first recorded around the Pacific, on islands of Southeast Asia such as Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia. On the Indian Ocean side, the cultivations spanned the southern parts of India and around Srilanka, Laccadives, and Maldives, respectively.
One must note that the water-bearing coconuts are believed to have originated in the Pacific region, while the fibrous ones hail from India, Srilanka, and Laccadives. The benefits of Coconut are more than one, and we will introduce you to them as you read the blog.
Significance and Benefits of Coconut
The parts of the Coconut tree are used in various ways. The milk we extract from ripe coconuts is used to make multiple exotic delicacies of non-vegetarian cuisine. When flaked or shredded, coconut meat works wonders when used in baked goods or candies. The dried version of Coconut meat is Copra, comprising about 60% oil. This oil, extracted from dry Coconut, benefits us in various ways and is used to make soaps, margarine, cooking fat, and other products.
