Do you use a pestle and mortar?


Recommended Posts

My mom had one for making sambal.  She only used it for that as I’m sure if you used it for anything else it would be hot.

One of my sisters ended up with it.  It was a wedding gift so travelled from Indonesia to Holland to America.  It was slick & smooth from decades of use.

If you do, and you are blending spices for tandoori chicken, do not touch your eye before washing hands.  

Don't ask me how I know.. 

I just watched a cooking show where they used them.  Of course, we chemists use them so often that we know the pestle is truly pronounced peshtle and it's the part you hold in your hand and grind with.
