Coconut Barfi – A Perfect Dessert for Pitta Dosha

Coconut barfi

Pitta-related foods should help to calm down the body’s fire. Salty, acidic, and pungent flavors should not be dominating, as Pitta is aggravated by these flavors. Sweet, astringent, and bitter flavors, on the other hand, lower dosha in the body.
