This might bring up the question, why specifically wooden ladle? While you can use steel ladle, but a wooden one helps prevent heat, making it easy to use. "How this works: the layer on top that traps the steam breaks when it hits the ladle and the vapour escapes, reducing the pressure beneath, preventing it from boiling over. Wood>>metal ladle, as it won't get hot and burn your fingers," Nandita Iyer further explained.
