Desiccated coconut powder is made from fresh coconuts. They are snow white, with crisp clouds of dust of coconut that add a freshness, sweetness and a pleasant taste when added to different cuisines. Desiccated coconut powder is a major component used in the preparation of different Indian cuisines. Since it is the dried form of coconut, the freshness is retained, and there’s no chance of the same getting damaged even after being exposed to extreme temperatures for long.
You will experience the taste of desiccated coconut in different Asian, Indian and other dishes. With this form of coconut, Indian desserts are also prepared.
How is desiccated coconut powder obtained?
Coconuts have a hard exterior; hence the same is cracked open first, and the water is drained out. The flesh of the coconut is then taken out and left to dry out. With the help of desiccated coconut powder machines, the same is then blended to produce crisp and fine-textured powder for different culinary purposes.
The major trick of this process is to keep the flesh of the coconut exposed to the right type of temperature. This allows the moisture content to dry out completely. The coconut powder will not get a crisp texture if the moisture doesn’t dry up properly.
