Sold and consumed in most of the markets in the city, Copra is the dried meat, or kernel, of the coconut. The Coconut oil is traditionally extracted by grating or grinding copra, then boiling it in water. The process of coconut oil extraction is done by crushing copra to produce coconut oil; the by-product is known as cake. Apart from the coconut oil Copra is extensively used in south Indian cooking as an important ingredient.
