Ammikkal or Matate or grinding slab with grinding stone combo is an authentic way of grinding small quantities for chutneys, wet masalas, or to powder spices. These ammikkals used to be a part of every South Indian household. In fact, when a girl gets married in Tamil Nadu, she receives ammikkal and attukkal (manual wet grinder) as gifts from her parents. In Karaikudi Chettiar families, they used to give 7 of these ammikkals and attukkals as wedding gifts, so the girl can pass them on to her children.
With the revival of traditional cooking, many people are interested in these manual grinding devices. The taste is much better when you make chutneys and masala powders with these devices.
Inno Concepts is happy to announce that we will be carrying these grinding stones in December, to help tradition lovers in USA. We are bringing in 2 kinds of these ammikkals - one conventional, simple model and another modern model with granite polishing to make it appropriate for your modern kitchen. It is like a new twist on the old tradition. We accept pre-orders for these ammikkals. Please visit our website to order.
