When was the last time you had Mezhakuperatti made in a cast iron vessel or Kanji in a clay pot? When you last visited your grandmom perhaps? The new generation or the millennials as we call them would probably have no idea what a clay pot fish curry would taste like.
“Apart from flavour, traditionally seasoned cookware come with many benefits,” says Priya Deepak, co-founder of The Village Fair, a startup that specialises in hand-seasoned cookware.
The idea was born when founder Radhika Menon read about a doctor in Canada who invented the method of dropping a cast iron fish into a wok while cooking to cure iron deficiency.
