From our Heritage collection - Uruli'(உருளி) is a traditional cookware extensively used in South India. It is also pronounced as Urli and commonly made of brass, clay, copper or bronze. The name Uruli is derived from the Tamil word "Urulai" which means a round bowl used at home for cooking.
Originally Varpu or Urli was a large cauldron and was also used to make Ayurveda Medicines and meals during festivals in homes and temples. As these vessels were shallow they were perfect for making medicine as one need to churn the same to keep the temperature even and is believed some of the metal reacted with the herbs making them more potent.
