Elixir of Kerala : Coconuts

Elixir of Kerala : Coconuts

          There will not be many places on Earth where people bathe and cook with the same oil. But we do – with coconut oil J.

It even goes in to our head- hair, I mean. We light lamps with the same oil and fry the chips too! Scrambled eggs is made out of it and so is the foo yung.

    Don’t even get me started with the source of the elixir – the Coconut. We use it in all ceremonies ranging from poojas to final rites. We start a new car breaking a coconut and enter a new house the same way.

    There is some luck even associated with the way a coconut breaks. If it breaks in to two even halves, it’s a good sign apparently.

    One of the greatest domestic crises that Kerala faces these days is that there is no way to get the Coconut down from 8 feet above! People who can climb coconut trees have become an endangered species.  It will not be an exaggeration if I were to say Coconut makes our lives go around ;).
