Line the bottom of your Kadai before adding fuel such as wood or charcoal to insulate it.
Benefits of using the beads:
Charcoal and wood will burn hotter and longer on the beads.
It will help insulate decking or the patio from the heat from the Kadai. The beads will also give protection to your Kadai fro the heat and the ash.
Use Kadai beads rather than sharp sand to prolong the life of your Kadai bowl.
They can be cleaned easily by rinsing using a riddle and also they allow the water to run through the bowl and through the drainage hole easily.
