Indian Clay Curry Pots, or Manchatti, Meenchatti or simply Chatti, are earthenware pots which are very traditional in Kerala’s cooking. They are present in almost every household, some handed down from generation to generation. They are also wildly popular in Malayan cooking. They are used in the making of fish curry and an important element in uplifting the flavors of any fish curry. Somehow, fish curry cooked in the earthen pot brings out the taste of fish curry to perfection.

How we measure



These Clay Curry Pots are handmade by artisans and very attractive in design. The clay may have markings and imperfections, however these imperfection do not compromise the aesthetics or functionality of the pieces and are considered normal and to be expected. Although the lids seat properly on the pot, they may not always fit perfectly so as to seal the pot as with metal ones.
