I also love the way they look on my kitchen worktop. Another thing to look out for is the smoothness of the surfaces of both pestle and mortar. A very rough surface can be difficult to cleaner, so it is important to buy one with a good balance of rough and smooth. Pestles and mortars that are made from stone are very sturdy and capable of crushing the hardest nuts and ingredients. What to Look for When Buying Pestles and Mortars

There are however subtle flavours that come from spices that are hand ground, giving your food that little bit extra. As an example, if you make a curry and use store-bought curry paste, a handmade curry paste that you have ground will taste 10 times better. Pestle and mortar come in a set as they need each other to function! Most Malaysians’ households would have at least one set of pestle and mortar since most of our dishes required crushed ingredients in our cuisines. You can use it to crush nuts, pound garlic into a paste, smash ginger or chilies to infuse flavour and more!
