Coconut Thuvayal Recipe Card


Hindi: nariyal
Coastal cuisine of India loves the coconut. Be it Goan or Malwani, Karnatak, Tamilian or from Kerala, the taste of coconut reigns supreme. Think about a rich fish curry and try making it obliterating the coconut! It will pass off as a fake. Very correctly termed as the ‘plant of life,’ each and every part of the coconut plant is useful in one or the other way.

Prep Time : 6-10 minutes

Cook time : 16-20 minutes

Serve : 4

Level Of Cooking : Easy
