  1. Seasoning is done to conceal minute holes or cracks inside the pot.
  2. Submerge and soak the new clay pot (manchatti) in clean water for 7 to 8 hours. Then give a thorough rinse to remove any dry residues.
  3. Fill the pot with some water and bring to a simmer on low heat. Increase the flame and bring the water to a complete boil. Allow it to cool and throw away the water and give a thorough scrub and rinse. Allow to dry completely and then glaze the inside with some coconut oil and leave it for a day or two.
