The cast iron tawa

This is a cast iron tawa. It looks exactly like a griddle, because it is a griddle.

A tawa is used in Indian cooking. They range from 8 inches to 12 inches.

It's used to stir fry vegetables and make flatbreads, such as roti bread, and dosa, a rice pancake.

Here's some instructions for making dosa, and another link for roti bread.

I've never made either one, and don't plan to anytime soon.

But, you can certainly make them on a cast iron griddle, which is what a tawa is.
