Kal Chatti is a cooking vessel that is carved out from stone, usually soapstone which is a natural soft stone.
The soapstone carved Kal Chatti has thick-walled and is heavy. With these great properties, these stones ensure slow and even cooking.
Kal Chatti made of soapstone is porous, so the heat and moisture circulate through the stone pot while cooking. This will add and enhance the flavors.
