A comal is a smooth, flat griddle typically used in Mexico and Central America to cook tortillas, toast spices, sear meat, and generally prepare food. Comales were also used to toast coffee. Some comals are concave and made of barro clay. Comals are similar to the American griddle and are often used and named interchangeably with these. Comals for home use are generally made from heavy cast iron, and sized to fit over either one burner on the stovetop. In many cultures, the comal is handed down from grandmother to mother the idea being that a comal tempered over many years of usage will heat faster and cook cleaner. Of course I didn’t really think that I was going to learn about using it but my mom believed that what woman can do, guys can also do it.  She has taught me how to use it.
