About Zishta Kerala Bronze Uruli - Natural Finish

  • A popular cookware in Kerala, these Urulis are used extensively for sweet dish preparation like chakka pradhaman & payasam and savouries like avial & kootu.
  • This particular model is made using the age old (almost lost technique) wax technique of casting and the specialty here is the use of clay from the river pampa for the moulding purpose. 
  • These hand-crafted Urulis have a very rusting finish and does not have the smooth finish like the machine worked ones. 
  • They are made with robust functional purpose and lesser aesthetic appeal - the key difference is the technique of making and final finishing by hand (Not machine) 
  • Made of pure Bronze, Zishta traditional Uruli is made by the highly skilled artisans of Kerala whose history dates back thousands of years.
  • Crafted by hand, these traditional cookware have higher density of metal enabling high heat carrying capacity, slow cooking and keeps the dish warm for hours after cooking.
  • The food cooked in them retain over 98% of the nutrition as well as the flavour, making the food tasty as well as healthy!

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.

  • Bronze as an alloy has been used for making cookware for many centuries. 
  • A significant traditional use of Uruli is during the celebration of Vishu and Onam for making sweet dishes like ada pradhaman, chakka pradhaman and other sweet dishes in this utensil. 
  • Over the years, our ancestors had developed techniques to make cooking vessels using five metals which were supposed to provide immense health benefits. Makers of such cookware no longer exist and we have lost a significant part of our traditions to histroy. 
  • Age old traditions use small gaps filled with Tin metal within the inner surface of the vessel to help in better conduction as well as maintaining the food warm for hours together. 
  • The artisans of Kerala are known for their craftsmanship using pure bronze in varying sizes from 7 inches to humungous 30 inches in diameter

.
  • The artistic process starts with creating wax moulds for cast and moulding of the bronze cookware in specific shapes. The volumetric capacity of the vessel determines the thickness and thereby the weight of bronze in the vessel too. 
  • A Key ingredient in the mould is the use of high quality clay from the river Pampa. 
  • Once removed from cast, the artisans work on the finish with hand to get the sand and clay off the surface and scrub it with sand paper to get the rusting finish. 
  • Bronze is a durable metal and can be used for a very long period of time or even passed on from one generation to another. 


  • Uruli with its high heat carrying capacity helps in uniform cooking, prevents nutrition loss and keeps food warm for hours after cooking in them. 

  • Bronze is known to remove free radicals from cooked food and modern research shows that free radicals in human body created environment for cancerous cells to grow. 
  • Traditional Uruli is made of 80% Copper and 15-18% Tin (with 2-5% Zinc added to help the casting process) and can be used for all types of non-acidic based cooking (without tamarind and lime).
  • Zishta Uruli is made of pure bronze and mild oxidisation will lead to dullness of colouring over period of time
.
  • Scrub the utensil with tamarind or ash or combination of both to revive shine
. 
  • Uruli is made heavy and needs to be handled with care
.
  • Retains heat for long, use cloth or mittens to handle the same after cooking.
  • As the finish is by hand - there could be some sharp edges - please be careful while cleaning.
