In India, pestle and mortar is a device used since ancient times to prepare ingredients or substances by crushing and grinding them into a fine paste or powder. The mortar is a bowl, typically made of hard granite stone, hard wood, ceramic or marble stone.
The pestle is a heavy and blunt club-shaped object, the end of which is used for crushing and grinding. The substance to be ground is placed in the mortar and ground, crushed or mixed using a pestle.
Mortars are mainly used in cooking to prepare ingredients such as garam masala mix and tea masala as well as grinding spices into powder.These mortars and pestles are still traditionally used in ayur pharmacies to crush various ingredients prior to preparing an extemporaneous prescription.
