Nariyal Pani...aka Coconut Water!

Coconut water the first thing everyone wants to beat the summer heat. Sellers get ready in the morning to catch morning walkers for their daily dose....
The water of a tender coconut is liquid endosperm. It's refreshingly sweet(mild) with airated feel when cut fresh. Depending on the size a tender coconut could contain the liquid in the range of 300 to 1000ml. It is known locally as well as in Tamil/Malayalam as 'Elaneer'.

Love the taste of fresh cocnut water. It's pretty rare around here however.

Again, a nice street shot. Love the daily life photos

I think the phrase Nariyal Pani, sounds a lot more appetising than the "technical" Endosperm! :))
