Coconut fruit is so versatile that each part of it, namely the water, milk, oil and meat are used for cooking and many other day to day needs. Coconut is called “nariyal” in Hindi. Coconut powder is made from desiccated (dried) coconut. Coconut is first dried and then shredded before blending it with water to make coconut milk. This coconut milk is then evaporated to lose its water content, leaving behind the fine flour like coconut powder.
