Ataranj Doosra — 8 inch Handcrafted Brass Spice Box Masala Dabba
Encouraged by the tremendous response to our first Ataranj brass spice box, we bring you our second design in the Ataranj series!
Elevate your kitchen with the glow of brass. Handmade in India, this pure brass spice box is engraved with traditional floral motifs. 8 inches wide, the masala dabba comes with 7 containers and a spoon. Tradition marries a contemporary brushed metal texture and the box is finished with a food-grade lacquer to retain the richness of brass over time.
For centuries, utensils were forged in brass to withstand the testing demands of Indian kitchens, yet glowed elegantly, elevating kitchens big or small. Bring back the glow of the traditional Indian kitchen to yours, today.
With Ataranj, we celebrate India's 4000-year history of making brass utensils. It's a tribute to Atranjikhera, Uttar Pradesh — where the oldest Indian brass dated from the 3rd and 2nd millennium was excavated.
The Ataranj is made by skilled artisans with great care. The multi-compartment spice box is essential to the Indian kitchen. Typically meant to store the most commonly used spices, it makes cooking convenient and efficient.
Ataranj comes with 7 brass containers and a brass spoon for your top 7 spices but don't let tradition get in the way of customisation. Use it to store snacks, mukhwas (Indian mouth fresheners), knick-knacks, or jewellery. Just avoid storing salt in your Ataranj.
If you're looking for a gift for someone who loves their kitchen, you couldn't go wrong with this beautiful piece of brass kitchenware. Packed attractively, ready to gift.
