Bronze urulis are unique to the Kerala region in India. Traditionally, they are meant to be used as cooking vessels, which gives that antique patina to the dish. In the present day, urulis are used in many alternative ways such as to float candles, flowers and even as a small water garden pool. Here is an image I want to share with you that is featured in my book.

  1. Lovely idea.

    I hope you'll come to AtticMag and see my home on tour this week.

  2. What a wonderful way to use something that was meant for something simple like cooking and turn it into such a beautiful display piece!

  3. Oh, I've never heard of these dishes before. Thank you for the knowledge and this is a very pretty way to use it.
    Be a sweetie,
