Coconut lovers, and ones with a sweet tooth, its time to treat your taste buds. After all, coconut is a favourite flavour to indulge in. One of the best things about coconut is that it is super versatile and can be molded into numerous recipes.
It not only magnifies the flavour of many South Indian dishes but is extremely beneficial for health in the form of the fibrous coconut drink. So how about enjoying coconut with a special recipe?
