Urulis have traditionally been used for cooking in Kerala. But today, they’re used for everything but that. In beautiful shades of old gold, and available in any size, old urulis can be used to hold fresh jasmine, marigold or scented floating candles. I use mine for magazines as it’s just the right size. My grandmother gives the old ones to the hens to lay their eggs in. Really!
