Product Info: “काताणे” (Paula Deen’s Pastry Wheel)

Dear Foodies,my didi’s friend Arati Karandikar-Agnihotri  (Irving) introduced me to the Paula Deen’s Pastry Wheel that could be used as काताणे to get the “zig-zag” pattern on the semi-circular sweet fritters that were made by our Guest Blogger of the Day,Sheetal (LA).I searched for it at all Indian stores in Sunnyvale,but in vain.Guess what? Arati told me I would get one at Wal-Mart in the home gadgets section.


Paula_3 The product comes from Paula Deen, an accomplished cook book authoress.I have read good reviews of her books too and would love to have a copy of her book soon (may be for my next venture,who knows)!!


Thanks Arati,you de-bugged my issues in just 4 and odd dollars!An extremely handy & economical stuff! So,galz…how about gifting this to our MIL’s or Moms on our next visit to India?

I m getting 2 more for sure!

Btw,if like Arati you guys wish to share any product/restaurant/food/beverage info or queries,this is your space.Feel free to share your opinions.They are extremely valuable!


  1. u get everything here, that day i forgot to tell you that you also get puran yantra it called as food mill. you may get it in any cookware store. as well as one can use cooking maker for chakli and world market (cost plus)do carry lots of indian stuff.

  2. @ Sheetal: yeah,quite surprising,isn't it?!!!!!!
    Indian stuff in American stores at affordable prices but expensive in Indian stores (in case they have them).Imagine "SORYA" (chakli-an indian concentric frtitter maker) @ 25 dollars at Kumud Stores,Henderson Plaza..Sunnyvale :P
