They come large enough to pickle a body in and small enough to store your favourite spices in. Traditionally, however, these have been used for pickles. The cool ceramic balances the heat generated within the pot with the chillies and oils. The colours are also soothing (cream and biscuit brown). It’s to calm the crazy pickle inside.
I use one as a flower vase though.
Available: Everywhere in India.
A classic. KC Das also has tinier ones for their mishti doi that are so seeped with the flavour that you are tempted to bite into that too.
