Handi is the Pot either clay or copper , a broad mouth vessel popular in South Asia. It’s similar to American bean pot , Spanish ollas and French soupières used for cooking purposes.
Cooking in clay pots gives a unique natural flavour to the dish. However it sometimes become challenging cooking in Handi , as in west we mostly have electric stoves. Back home in Pakistan you will see in village people cooking on wood burning fire. If you own gas stove it convenient
Anyways , once in a while I cook in Handi, before I share the recipe three things to do before you start cooking in hand.
- Wash the handi with with soap
- Make sure there are no cracks.
- Heat up the handi well before starting to cook.
Lets , cook now !
