For the purpose of this post, I am talking about TASTE only.
I have only ever bought coconut oil from the Indian shop. I started using it lots of Keralan cooking where it worked well. Now though it appears in lots of other recipes and whenever I use it I can taste South Indian food. Is that just because it reminds me of it, or does health food shop coconut oil taste different? It's hugely more expensive, so I don't want to buy it only to find out it's just my taste buds and memory playing tricks on me.
