Trivia / Calm Lakshadweep

Not only is ___________ a widely used ingredient in local Lakshadweep food but also its cultivation contributes majorly to the economy.

  1. Tomato
  2. Coconut
  3. Beetroot


As the Union Territory of Lakshadweep and Kerala are closely located, their respective cuisines share almost the same flavour. It is essentially because the locals of Lakshadweep too prefer adding coconut in their dishes. Since it is commonly used in the islands, its cultivation is one of the most prominent occupations of the islanders, becoming a part of the economy.

Along with a variety of shrubs and seaweeds, the coconut groves also form a part of the flora of coral sands. Coconut fibre extraction and manufacturing of fibre products can be considered as one of the main industry in Lakshadweep.
