In India one of the most common offerings in a temple is a coconut. It is also offered on occasions like weddings, festivals, the use of a new vehicle, bridge, house etc. It is offered in the sacrificial fire whilst performing homa. The coconut is broken and placed before the Lord. It is later distributed as prasaada.
Coconut is the fruit of the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). It's used for its water, milk, oil, and tasty curries.
