Thanks for exploring with me some of my kitchen treasures. I just want to bring some of kitchen tools and ustensils which I considered a treasure. All of the items are made in India, except the last one , some given as a gift from my mom.
These items are traditionals, can be found in all Tamilian homes. But when you move out of your country, you cannot even think about getting any of this plate, press, etc... for money.
All this stuffs are rushing to the NON-COOKING event of Kitchen Treasure hunt.
Highlight number one, Filter coffee is always Tamilian trademark for morning breakfast or evening. There is two filters in pictures and cup and saucer (tabbara) which they serve coffee traditionally.
Highlight number 2:
Pretty much this mold/press has been dusted every Diwali! Once in a year, I use this items but a real treasure for me. I cannot imagine ladoos and murrukus without ...
Picture shows Boondi plate, Hand press murruku, iddiyapam, sev and modern one which can be used directly in oil.
Highlight no 3:
After all Tamilian without idli plates? Yes this different size of idlis plate (Ghee /sambar idlis,normal size idli and little bigger than ghee idli mold)
Highlight no 4:
Very frequent use of this tool in my kitchen, is very handy for me to scrap the fresh coconut.
Last but not least:
The wooden tool with long handle called "Mattu" is served to mash green coarsely in earthen pot (manual hand blender).
The other one is called "Muram in tamil" used to make triage of husk, separate broken rice and stone.... ( I got it in Asian store in US) I just keep as show piece in my kitchen this two items.
Hope you enjoyed my treasures :)
