Goan Coconut Scraper & Fish Scaler

Traditional Goan Coconut Grater & Fish Scaler

Prime player in the Goan kitchen - the coconut grater is made by local craftsmen. The curved metal blade, which is used for scaling fish, splitting shells and cutting several types of vegetables, ends in a sharp toothed semi-circle that is used to scrape/grate coconut. The device is pivoted with metal angles to a stool collapsing over on the stool for safety when not in use.
