World Coconut Day Special: Homemade Bounty Bars!2 minute
By Likita Gowda
Today is World Coconut day! Yes, that’s right. September 2nd is when the world celebrates coconuts for all the awesomeness that they are. The reason why it is celebrated on this particular day is because 2nd September is when the Asian Pacific Coconut Community (APCC) was formed. The headquarters of APCC is located in Jakarta, Indonesia and all major coconut growing countries including India are members of the community.
Now let’s get back to the star of the day - coconut!
It is hands down one of the healthiest foods out there and can be used in so many ways. While coconut is used a lot in South Indian and South East Asian savoury dishes, it also makes for a superb ingredient for desserts.
