The term “Aal Potti” is referred to a Cupboard which is used to store prepared food and vessels. The Cupboard is kept against a wall in or near the kitchen.
The Cabinets are built in for food, cooking equipments, etc.,
These cupboards used to have a thin layer of mesh like covering which used to allow air to circulate in and out. Ancient days, the remaining hot food after the use and wet vessels were stored inside. Nowadays it is found rarely as we can find fridge in many house in Kodagu.
