A traditional Indian flat pan, the Chapati pan is designed for cooking authentic flatbreads over a barbecue or fire pit. With its wide, flat base, it can also be used for preparing omelettes, or frying eggs and vegetables. Some images courtesy of Kadai.

Working with talented artisans and craftspeople, Kadai’s founding principle is to design, make, and supply handmade products that are as useful as they are beautiful, with minimum impact on the environment.

  • Made from steel with a wooden handle
  • You can repeat the oiling process whenever necessary to keep your pan in optimum condition, as cooking or heating some foods may degrade the oiled finish. The more it is used, the better the non-stick finish becomes.
  • Avoid cleaning in the dishwasher as this will remove the natural oiled finish.

The pan has a protective food safe coating that is applied for transportation and will require the traditional curing process prior to use:

  1. To remove the coating, heat the pan to a medium temperature and then thoroughly wash in warm soapy water.
  2. Dry, then apply a thin coat of cooking oil.
  3. Heat the accessory again, but to a hot temperature (the oil may smoke a little, but this is just part of the curing process).
  4. Repeat this application process several times until an even 'black' coat is achieved.
