    Want to Maintain 100% Nutrition in Food? Cook in Earthen Pots (मिट्टी के वर्तन) - By Rajiv Dixit



    The earthenware had once been an intrinsic part of the Indian household. In olden days earthenware was used for cooking purposes and storing water in the earthen ware known as kalash for it keeps the water cool.

    Cook food in an earthen pot on a low flame. This will retain the high nutritional value of the tender food items which is lost when cooked in ovens, pressure cooker and high flame.

    Earthen pots prove good for slow cooking as their porous nature allows both moisture and heat to circulate easily through them. This helps in even, slow and delicate cooking. Roasts and stews are cooked well in earthen pots. Storage of water in earthenware allows the heat from the water to escape thereby keeping the water cool.

    Clay being alkaline in nature helps in neutralising the pH balance of the food by interacting with the acid present in the food. Foods that are naturally acidic will acquire some natural sweetness. Acids in foods like tomatoes when cooked in earthen pots give the food a wonderful taste.
