Hand crafted from brass, you can still find these kettles being used to make tea on road sides, in small wayside restaurants and villages where the "Chai wala or tea seller heats the water in the kettle on a coal fire or a gas stove, throws in a generous amount of tea leaves, fresh milk, heaps of sugar and after bringing this tea to many a boil, finally serves it in Terracotta or mud glasses called " Kulhars ".
