Greetings from MAKUSR. In India also we make dishes sometime in earthen pots to give them distinct flavor. Sometimes, A piece of hot coal is taken in a metallic bowl and placed on the dish and the container with dish and coal piece is covered by the lid for a minute or so. It gives it a distinct flavor. Try it.

Lots of Love,

MAKUSR
