Ammikallu is a south-Indian kitchen essential that is used for grinding wet masalas. Spices are placed on the flat and thick stone and then ground with an oval stone in a forward and backward motion. Everything from your quintessential Coriander thogayal to fresh masala for Arachuvitta Sambar attains a much more intense flavour profile when ground the old-school way using the entrusted Ammikallu.
Each of our Ammikallu is made manually by rural artisans and they have grooves and dots made by hand using a sharp tool all over their surface. These grooves make it easier for you to grind the wet masalas. As you pass on the Ammikallu from one generation to another, you can use the hand tool to make new grooves on the kallu. Better yet, bring it to us, and we’ll have our rural artisans re-groove it for you. They have after all, been doing this for many, many generations.
Note: Each of our utensils come with an instruction card on maintenance and long-term care.
