                    I mean two of my kitchen treasures,to display for the event "Kitchen Treasure Hunt". I know I am sending it in the last moment,still happy to send my contribution...to Dibs of Chitramma's Kitchen.
                   By now,many of our friends have posted their treasures,in which mine also were there mostly...so I have displayed only two of mine....

 

spice box:

Anjarai-petti-2
        (Updated Picture)
    Almost every south Indian,will have this one in their  kitchen...So I too have and its bought by my mom and very close to my heart!
                  This one in Tamil we call it as " Aindhu Arai Petti"  means box with five rooms,though mine have seven and almost now a days,there are  7 rooms box only....May be long time back when they named it might have  had originally only 5.
              This authentic box is made of stainless steel,with individually engraved spice canisters...Each canister has its own small spoon too!
             With this box,every women(Ok,men cook too) can organize her/his own favorite spices,they use in their day to day cooking! So seven of your favorite spice can be easily accessed whenever you need them...cool right?
               Mine,being a south Indian, I will always have Mustard,Urad dal,channa dal,thuvar dal,turmeric,jeera and fenugreek seeds(vendhayam) in my boxes... Heres the display snap for you all!
Masala dabbha
Bear with my bad focusing

 

idly steaming pot:

            Mine is a bit smaller one my mother in law gifted me,is made of aluminium,and cloth has to be used in the plates to steam cook idlies... It gets cooked so quickly,as its small and made of aluminium and we enjoy soft idlies...thanks to my Mother in law.
Idly pot
See you all soon with recipes!

    Great blog you have going here!

    I have a question regarding commenting here, I am not a Blogspot blogger, but your site doesn't seem to allow any other type of blogger to comment. Not sure if you meant it to be that way.

  30. Hi Hema,
    Good to hear from you,kidly contact me in my mail ID,which u can find it in my profile...,sure I will post it through my blog!!

  31. Hey those spices boxes are really nice. I've never seen anything like them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i like the shape of the mould in the trays...

    ReplyDelete
  33. why do you need to use cloth in this idli tray?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Its not a must,it gives you more moist idlies,also as this idly plate is made of aluminium I think the idlies tend to stick more in the plate than in the normal ever-silver plates...

    ReplyDelete
  35. when i use a cloth lots of batter sticks to the cloth how to avoid this.... once removing the cooked idli?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ayesha, after you invert the idly plate, and before taking the cloth off, sprinkle some water on the back. That will surely reduce the idly getting stuck on the cloth. Hope i am clear to convey you what I have in my mind!?
