Traditional Indian Cooking Pots

Sup indian friends!

Recently watched the film, Hare Krishna, about the famous indian yoga philosopher Swami Prabupada! I was very much moved by this film and chant Hare Krishna frequently as a result.

During the film, the Swami cooked using these nesting pots that looked like they were cooking rice, beans, and veggies simultaneously in the same container! I was curious if anyone here knows what these are called or might be able to point me in the right direction here. I am very interested in using them to adopt an ayurvedic diet going forward. 🙂

  1. Can you describe the pots some more? What are they made from? Do they sit inside each other (nesting), or on top of each other. How big?

  2. Are these just like the stackable metal containers you can put in a pressure cooker? For example,, you’d be able to steam a potato and cook rice at the same time.

  3. /u/iBrarian is right. I remember reading that Srila Prabhupada used brass variants of those steamers. IIRC, these vessels go directly into the classic deadweight model whistling pressure cookers.
