A traditional Kerala duo- the uruli and chattukam

A traditional uruli - this one can hold enough payasam for 2,000 people

With an uruli so big can the chattukam(stirrer) be left behind???

Wow! thats cool. What a massive uruli. I am sure, preparing payasam in this metal uruli enhances the taste of the payasam. Thanks for sharing this picture.

Jaya,

we had one at home like this, but some body stole it from the store room outside of the house, it was old family asset..:(

Seena, the pics were taken during my father's Shastiabdapoorthy a few months back.
Ayyo, kashtam...makes you feel real sad when u lose something that's been in the family for ages.

At my father's place they have lots of this uruli and chattukams, not to feed 2000 people though :) but grandma had each one for her 12 kids ranging in different sizes :) ur post just reminded me of all that :)
