Factual Lounge:

Coconut is often combined with hot chillies or curries in Asian Cuisine. Coconut is a very versatile and indispensable fruit for most people under the tropical belt. It is a complete food  rich in calories, vitamins, and minerals.

Curry leaf is an essential ingredient in Indian cooking especially in South India. However, it’s customary for most of us to simply remove and throw the leaf from our food and not consume it. Well, you shouldn’t be doing that! It has many medicinal properties. It stimulates digestive enzymes and helps break down food more easily.
