All our products are handcrafted and this results in each product being unique and slightly different from each other and therefore will have minor variations on dimensions & weight.

  • Soft, fluffy, light Idlis is a dream breakfast for many South Indian homes where generally the softness is compared to the Jasmine flowers. 
  • Following the history of making the best and fluffy Idlis, we travelled to the interiors of Tamil Nadu in search of the most appropriate cookware for the same. 
  • Our research in search of traditional idli steamers took us to the traditional brass Idli makers of rural Tamil Nadu, a hidden gem which took us three long years to find. 
  • This amazing cluster re-created and infused life into these traditionally old brass Idli maker and have brought back the beauty. 
  • Brass is the metal with critical weight to size ratio that builds the right amount of steam pressure to make appetising and soft idlis in exactly 10 minutes. 
  • The holes in the idli plates also enable steam to pass through the batter effectively thereby cooking it all the way through at shortest possible time. 
  • Idli plates and inside of the vessel is tin coated which would need refurbishing every couple of years depending on usage. 
  • Available in three sizes of 7 Idli Pits, 9 Idli Pits, 12 Idli Pits (Check specifications in table below)
  • These are made to order products and would take 15-20 days to make and ship. 
  • Post Tin lining, the brass Idli steamer is re-polished to get back the shine. This Process could involve some chemical treatment as well. 
  • Note: The traditional work involves only hammering of the outer vessels and the edges might be sharp along the edges. This is minimally worked to smoothen as it could impact the lid closure. This is a natural imperfection which may be present in the idli vessel.
