Replace your round tawa with these extraordinary square tawas to add versatility in cooking


It’s a cooking tool that is paramount in every Indian kitchen. It is the cookware that is extensively used to cook staple Indian meals- roti! Yes, a cook may ignore other cookware, but tawa is essential and extremely important in Indian kitchens. So, what comes to your mind when you think about tawa? When we asked some fellow cooks to say one word about tawa, everyone unanimously said “round.” Round, really? Can tawa only be round? We beg to differ and want to present you tawas that are exceptionally good but not round!

What is tawa?


Tawa is also known as tawah, thavah or tava- all referring to the round pan with curved profile and concave side that is generally used to cook flatbreads or pancakes. Though extensively used in the Indian subcontinent, tava also is used across the world in various ways. Linguistically speaking, in Iran the word tāve is derived from the Persian word taaba that denotes something that is curved or tempered. Similarly, the curved cast-iron tool used for cooking bread in Afghanistan is known as tawah. The word tava has also been used in Turkish and refers to any kind of frying pan.


So we can conclude that in all of these places, a tava is primarily used to bake and cook a wide range of leavened and unleavened flatbreads and pancakes such as naan, pita, saj bread, pita, pita, chapati, paratha, dosa, crepes and pesarattu.



Can tawa only be round in shape?


No. Meyer proudly has launched roti tawas and dosa tawas that are anything but round. These tawas are great to prepare your daily staple and break the old-set and never experienced norms. In fact, square tawas offer the bigger advantage of wider space (more breads to fit, larger dosas to prepare) then a regular round tawa.



What are the benefits of round tawa?


You get proportionally larger space to cook more. If you can toast 2 bread loaves on a round pan, you can toast 4 on a square pan. The larger cooking space helps you cook more in less time and reduces your time, effort as well as fuel consumption.



So, here are top square tawas in India that you can completely trust for their built, design, strength, safety and durability.
