Tava Veg Recipes

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. It is also used to prepare a range of starters and snacks. It has a handle that helps you to hold the pan and handle the food easily, sometimes flipping it in a smart way to cook evenly! Some delicacies that were traditionally cooked in a tandoor like the naan can also be cooked in a tava, reproducing the same great taste in a convenient manner.

Let's have a look at some dishes cooked on tava!
