  • Traditionally brass is a significant metal which was used all over India as a cheaper alternative to bronze and even lighter as they can be worked upon easily. 
  • The brass plates can be easily worked on for kneeding dough and as it has tin coating, allowing the dough to rest in the same plate with a wet muslin cloth to make fluffy soft rotis and parathas. 
  • The Tambat makers of Maharashtra have unique skills honed over centuries to work with Copper and brass metals
  • The process starts with making of a mould and making the rough product and processing the same. This process is a crafts secret which is shared only within the Tambat community
  • The rough products are hand worked for 3-4 hours with a finely balanced hand hammer beat on the surface to provide the unique craftsmen signature.
  • Brass Paraat is the most traditional plate used for kneading the dough for chappatis and Parathas.

  • Lasts for generations
  • No harmful metals or chemicals. Tested for quality.
  • The brass paraat is made with kalai (tin coating) as it does come in contact with food items which are to be cooked. 
  • Use tamarind or lemon while washing to get back the shine. Refrain from using steel wired scrubs. 
  • Use mild detergents and soap with sponge to clean the inner surface of the Paraat.
