Cracking the Coconut: Vikas Khanna’s Quick Hack

Chef Vikas Khanna is known for frequently posting cooking hacks on Instagram. Recently, he posted a video teaching his audience how to easily peel a coconut.

Coconut is one of the most versatile ingredients in our kitchen. It is widely available and can be prepared in a variety of ways. While coconut is used in many simple recipes, cracking it open can be more difficult than it appears. It is difficult for everyone to break the hard shell uniformly. So, if this is a problem for you, Chef Vikas Khanna has a solution!

Vikas Khanna suggests splitting the coconut in half in the video. After that, keep the hard shell over the gas flame. When the shell is nearly black, turn off the flame. Put the coconut in a dish filled with cold water. The coconut meat is then gradually extracted from the hard shell.

The chef also mentioned in the caption that he witnessed a woman performing this trick while in Kohlapur, Maharashtra.

This video has received nearly 50,000 likes and numerous comments since it was shared. “Oh man, such a simple trick. Aur humlog knife, hammer aur pata ni kya kya use krte the. Thank you so much for this information Vikas”, one person wrote.
