The thatheras near Amritsar are known for their traditional brass and copper craft of utensil making. This craft has been included in the UNSECO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Degchi is the most commonly used kitchen utensil in the Indian kitchens for the purpose of cooking. The bigger degchi are called Deg.
The degchi is utilised mainly for cooking purposes, especially for slow-cooking. For example when any dish is cooked in the degchi – the lid is sealed to it, using dough so steam cannot escape, preserving the nutrients in the food. In turn this also allows for the food to be cooked using its own water content, accentuating its flavour and tang.
