BRASS KALAM WITH TIN COAT/PONGAL KALAM/BRASS SOMBU
Brass has been a substitute for bronze cookware for years. In order to make it food safe, a coating of tin is given inside the vessel. This coating called kalai in hindi and eeyam poosal in tamil/ malayalam, brings back the old memories of how people used to come home and do in the old days.It was believed that milk boiled in these vessels did not go bad too soon.
Why Tin Coat:
Copper and brass are subject to chemical action caused by sour or acid food placed in them.This action is lessened,if not prevented by the tin coating applied to the vessels.
There are two types of ‘eeyam’ one is velleeyam or tin and the other is kareeyam or lead. Eeya pathirams are made of tin. In Ayurveda, tin is called vangam and vangabasmam or tin ash is used to treat diabetes and many conditions of the urinogenital tract.A research paper published in an international research journal details how vanga bhasmam is used in the treatment of non-healing wounds, premature ejaculation, for semen augmentation, cough, cold, bronchitis and asthma. Vanga bhasmam balances Kapha.
