Coconuts originally come from India and Southeast Asia but because they float, were carried to coastlines all over the Pacific Ocean and successfully made their homes in all the subtropical places they could find and now coconut palms grow in all subtropical coastal zones around the world. Coconut milk is the liquid that comes from grated coconut meat and it can be very thick and creamy or thinner and more milk-like. It’s been one of the main ingredients in Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Caribbean and northern South America for centuries and even millennia in some places, such as India.
It is the main ingredient in many traditional dishes and beverages and is sometimes used for ceremonial offerings. Of all the plant milks, coconut has the longest tradition of use. In India no religious offer is acceptable without a coconut.
