Recently I visited my relatives village.... This was the stove they were using to cook their daily food. 'Choola' is the hindi terminology if you would like to relate it....
Have a Real Great Weekend!!!
Funny as it may sound, food cooked in this manner was tastier and healthier. Modernisation has its flip side. For example, heating food in a microwave gives it an almost insipid taste.
Tell me, isn't it a joy to drink cool water from an earthen pot (matka) than from the fridge?
PS: You never told us what's cooking in that foto:)

@Anand Balaji: I should say, all the modern techiniques picks the base idea from such manual stuff...
I think it was allogedde palya that was cooking , a side dish to dose.! :-)
Yes Veena, washing clothes on a washing stone has led to washing machines entering our homes! makes the task easier. Possibly, the hectic and demanding lifestyles in this era have contributed to machines taking over our lives.

@kmf: Thanks, Yeah, It was quite a dark place & I clicked it out of my mobile camera! I could do this much :-)
I do remember seeing these and also have eaten food prepared on these at our village long time ago. What is interesting is, when we had a power outage for 3 to 8 days at a stretch due to storms in Seattle area 3 months ago, there were few people hospitalized either for using the fireplace (of natural wood) or for using natural gas room heaters in enclosed homes due to winter season. The reason was the carbon-monoxide emitted from burning wood inside the house. I am kind-of now confused :)
anyways, looking at the dish name "allogedde palya" you seem to speak kannada. aaloogedde palya nanna favoraitu. looks yummy... :)
