Tongs in Indian Cooking

Tongs are used to toast pappadams, appalams, fry in oil, or to take ice cubes, coal, or to pick up salads.

Tongs are made using different materials and each tong using each material is used for each activity. Tongs normally are made out of wood, aluminium, stainless steel and now a days even in plastic.

Wooden tongs are used mainly to pick up ice, salad pieces etc. But now a days, due to the ease in picking up plastic tongs are used to pick up salads and sugar cubes. Stainless steel tongs are used to toss and turn food while cooking.
