Cooking is an art and just like an artist, you would also need certain tools to execute and create a masterpiece. Indian food is highly diverse and for cooking them you would require an array of equipment's. The basic tools you would require are a sharp knife, cutting board, pans, cooking utensils, saucepans, rolling pin and board, food processor, spice box, griddle, pressure cooker

Talking about griddles, commonly known as tava, it is a wide surfaced pan with very shallow (and sometimes no) sides, which is heated for griddling or grilling. They come both curved and flat bottoms. They are generally made out of iron or are covered with a non-stick coating. The coating prevents food from sticking and makes cleaning easier. It is really an advantage when reheating sticky foods, such as rice. It also reduces the amount of fat that is normally required while cooking. It is used to cook rotis, parathas, naans, dosas, pancakes and other flat breads. See Indian rotis made using tava like jowar roti, jowar methi roti and Gujarati rotla.

Tasty Onion Tomato Rava Uttapa is a versatile dish that can be made for breakfast or supper, or as an evening snack for kids. Interestingly, this recipe is not a quick-fix that uses soda to rise the batter, nor does it require planning the previous day, as an hour is all that it takes for the semolina batter to ferment, thanks to the quick action of curds.
