Craving for something sweet? Try these coconut recipes

August 06, 2017 16:11 IST

Now that the coconut has won its title back as a tree, you may want to try out some coconut recipes. 

Good news! Coconut may soon be declared as the state tree of Goa.   

Earlier, it was classified as a palm tree in Goa, due to which it was prone to indiscriminate felling.

But just this week, the Goa Cabinet has approved an amendment to re-classify coconut as a tree.

Moreover, it has also been resolved to declare coconut as the state tree. 

On that note, here are some recipes that you can try over the weekend.
