Lao-style mortar and pestle
Posted 03 April 2012 - 02:11 PM
I've been using a Thai-style granite mortar and pestle to make the pastes/sauces for my SE Asian salads (such as som tam), and then to very gently incorporate all the ingredients of the salad together. I understand the granite mortar and pestle is not the right tool for the job, and that the clay one should be used for this purpose.
I'm wondering if purchasing a clay mortar and pestle will make a visible difference in how my SE Asian salads turn out.

If you make a lot of salads, it's worth it. You just might be able to find a cheaper one if that matters to you.
