Coconut, also known as Nariyal, is a hard fruit that grows in tropical and sub-tropical areas around the world and is widely used in Indian Cuisine, especially south Indian. It can be used in a dried form, paste, grated or even toasted. Not only is it used to make sweet coconut dishes, it is also used as main ingredient in many savory coconut dishes.
