JFI for Coconut
It's my turn to host Jihva this month and I have chosen an ingredient that I frankly can't do without. In fact it'd be difficult to attempt any dish from my part of the world without it. But cooking aside, coconut is integral to all of India. It is by breaking this fruit that we begin a new venture after all.
So to mark the new year that is coming upon us, January is dedicated to the COCONUT.
Use it any way - tender, grated, sweetened, dessicated; in any form - milk, cream, water, oil, heck even liquor if you want to be really adventurous ;-) and make a dish with it.
If you don't know what I am talking about you really need to read food blogs more often (everday would be a good start!). Till then here is the brief - Jihva for Ingredients is a monthly food event started by Indira of Mahanandi. A new host selects an ingredient every month and bloggers everywhere make a dish featuring it. Past JFI's include dal, Diwali treats and jaggery among others.
Your misson should you choose to accept is :-) -
- Prepare a dish with coconut and post the recipe on your blog (preferably) on Jan. 1
- Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the permalink to your post and a photo of the dish in 75×75 pixel size
- Include the name of your dish and your blog's name in the email
- Check the roundup at the end of the week
Non bloggers are welcome. Email me a photo of your dish with a description and I will gladly include it in the round up.
That's it friends. Let's go nuts this time around!
