Bronze is a mixture of copper and tin. Bronze is majorly used in making sculptures of gods and goddesses in Tamil Nadu. These pots are used traditionally to make Sweet Pongal on the day of Thai Pongal in the month of January.
Every new bride is given a Bronze Pot to cook her first Pongal in it.
This pot can be used to make rice, Pongal etc.
Tamarind based curries are not cooked in a brass or bronze pot as the metal leaches into the food rendering it inconsumable.
