Few of us have experiences from our childhood where we have seen earthen cookwares from handi , matki to tawa and few more. I loved my tea in kullad just like the smell of earth after the first rain in monsoon- soundi soundi mitti ki kushboo. Milk boiled in earthen pots that had s different taste, Curd made in earthen pot the consistency was out of this world.
“In Ayurveda, Pancha Mahabhuta theory states that everything in the physical creation is composed of these 5 elements, Akaash (Ether), Vaayu (Air), Agni (Fire), Jala (Water) & Prithvi (Earth). We at Native Roots have dream to make available products that are rationally inspired by Pancha Mahabhuta and bring about a healthy world through active Natural and Organic intervention.” – Thats what the about us section of Native Roots reads at http://nativerootsindia.com/
Had been to Select CITYWALK yesterday and on my way out , I was stuck on this small counter that had various earthen pots on display. And as i started evaluating that i should or i should not pick since had no plans to pick up anything, Mr Mishra at the counter smiled and said all of this is made of earth (mitti) and are sourced from Orissa and are on display to promote and sell the products made by artisians back there..
I got pretty interested and asked him so what does he do, he said he is a lawyer by profession and his wife is in IT. he is doing this work out of passion for this work and supporting the artisians. All the utensils are microwave safe and are reusable. The best part of the cookwares are that they can be used on the gas too for cooking.
So what all you may pick from “Native Roots ” , well the options are many from bowls, to tumblers, to plates, thalis, tava, kadai, cooking wares etc etc. So do explore the earthen ware for a toxin free cooking.
What is the procedure for upkeep,well thats also very simple , just wash them with luke warm water and a pinch of salt. Isnt that really easy. The most important fact why i am seriously vouching for these earthenwares is that these are toxin free and completely eco friendly. We all have read or heard that the utensils made of melamine are very hazardous and the colors which are used to beautify these utensils are further dangeous, so the earthen wares from natie roots are a great relief from such toxicated utensils. I have picked the following and looking forward to add more to my kitchen really soon.
My strong recomendation for these products is Earthen tumblers for your special Tea / Milk. Using the cooking ware for making curd or making curry dishes.
And the pricing is also quite affordable. Bowls for Rs. 30/- each, Tumbler for Rs. 50/- and that deep serving cum cooking dish for Rs. 400/- only.
Using the earthen pots is like going back to roots yet staying modern and eco friendly.
