Till a few decades ago the people of Tamil Nadu used mud pots and clay pots for cooking their food. With the advent of metal utensils, mud pots and clay pots almost disappeared from the house holds.
People preferred mud and clay pots for cooking purpose, as the food is prepared over slow heat. This enhanced the taste, aroma and most importantly, retained the nutrients of the food. The food while cooking mixes with the clay flavor creating a new aroma and it does attract every food lover.
So here is a delicious Nattukozhi Kuzhambu cooked in mud pot…:-)
