A culinary antique, the Vegetable Cutter or called the Aruvamanai is a traditional South Indian kitchen utensil.
It is a 19th-century Indian traditional tool used to cut vegetables. Because of its large size, it was used in Hindu Temples during ancient times. The user used to sit upon its wooden base and cut vegetables with its sharp blades made of steel.
A fascinating relic, the Arivalmannai still beats other modern utensils today owing to its craftsmanship and large size.
