Serve a small dish of coconut plain or toasted so it can be sprinkled over some favorite curry on the dinner plate. If Toasted Coconut is served as a condiment, do not serve Coconut Chutney as well. A little of the sweet, heavy, and oily properties of coconut go a long way. They are good for Vata and Pitta and increase Kapha.
