Our Vedic Tradition gave immense importance to the metals that our cooking utensils are made. Some of the metals that were used to make traditional vessels are Copper, Bronze, Brass, Clay, Stoneware and Iron
Each of the metals had their own significance and not all dishes were prepared using any of these metal vessels. Each of the dish was prepared in the metal vessels which not only added taste but also enhanced medicinal properties int here own way. There was science behind the type of metal vessel that was used.
