Making of Mortar & Pestles...


Traditionally, Mortar & Pestles were a must for every indian kitchen. Though in modern times they are replaced by mixies, true believers of taste say that the preparations in electrical grinder that to stone differ in taste...

The stone work requires lot of hardwork and patience as making of one single unit may take several hours or even days... Bangalore being rich with best quality stones provides ample opportunities to stone workers such as this.. once ready each piece depending on size may fetch Rs. 150 to Rs.400 ( US$ 3 to 10)..
