Using coconut many ways in many dishes comes naturally for a South Indian. I can say that my mother couldn't really cook without coconut in her kitchen. I don't use as much as she does, but there are certain dishes in which, I am very fond of using them.
Starting from Indian Coconut Burfi, to not so Indian Vegan coconut cookies, Egg less Coconut Cakes, Easy Pineapple Coconut Cake, Beetroot Coconut Halwa, Ricotta Coconut Fudge/Burfi, Rice, Coconut and Jaggery Sweet, Vegan Banana Coconut bread to name a few.
Some people consider coconut as dessert ingredient. You may change your mind if you look at these..
Minty Coconut Rice, Tomatillo Rice with coconut and spices, Vegetable Stew, Coconut Pineapple Rice, Mango Rice and many more.
And my adaptation of coconut in yeast breads like No knead coconut, lime and chillies flatbread, Coconut Chocolate Rolls/Buns shows that coconut is quite versatile maybe not as much as rice, but still.
Happy Wednesday everyone.Pin It
