Pestle and mortar earthenware - 23 cm(9 inch)

An eartherware 7 inch mortar, with a wooden pestle. Ideal for grinding herbs and spices and for making curry pastes.

The earthenare mortar and pestle also sometimes known as the Laos or Laotian mortar and pestle is commonly used to make Green Papaya Salad (sohm tahm) which is a dish of Issan, or North East Thailand. This set works best for salad making because of its larger bowl size. The spices are mashed up first with the wooden pestle and then the shredded papaya is added. This is then pounded and tossed to blend the ingredients.

The pestle and mortar has recently had a lot of limelight due to televisions shows such as the Naked Chef hosted by Jamie Oliver. In Jamie’s own words - This is one of my favourite things to use in the kitchen! The size of this pestle and mortar is perfect for my recipes, so go on, get stuck in and have a blast!

These pestle and mortars have a long lifetime, with some lasting over twenty years. You will find these being used by almost every street vendor in Thailand as it’s an essential part of Thai cookware for any Thai chef.
