A small decorative karahi (left) and handi (right) used to serve Indian food.

A handi is a deep, wide-mouthed cooking vessel used in north Indian, Pakistani and Bengali cooking. Because there are many specific Indian and Pakistani dishes cooked in this vessel, their names reflect its use, such as handi biryani.

Handi is also known as Tasla or Tasli in many provinces of india. These names are given on the basis of sizes and its design. Tasla/Tasli have a less wide mouth than Handi and are much more deeper than usual and from inside they have much more space and they resemble as pot with wider mouth.

Handis resemble American beanpots, French soupières, and Mexican and Spanish ollas. They are used similarly. They are still used in northern areas of Pakistan like Kashmir etc.
