Multipurpose Twin Chambered Cooking Vessel
M. Abdul Razak of Madurai, Tamilnadu created a cooking vessel, which is for multiple uses. The developer noticed the drudgery involved in discarding the gruel after boiling the potted rice in conventional cooking, especially in public functions where people are required to drain the starch water once the rice gets boiled. Moreover, modern rice pressure cookers don’t facilitate draining starch water which contains more carbohydrates that causes obesity. Hence, the innovator came up with an idea to provide perforated plate and outflow pipe at the bottom of the conventional vessels, so that one can easily drain starch water once the cooking is over. This vessel is also partitioned to cook “lentils” simultaneously. The conventional vessel is provided with groove or cavity at the bottom of the vessel to keep the perforated plate. An outflow pipe is provided at the bottom of the vessel. The perforated plate divides the boiled rice and the water and once the rice gets boiled, the water will be drained by opening the outflow tape. Later the innovator introduced an another option to cook “lentils” in the same vessel by giving partition in the vessel, so that one can cook rice and lentils at the same time. It takes 30 to 45 minutes to boil the custom tasted plain rice and ‘lentils’.
