A mortar and pestle is a tool used to crush, grind, and mix substances. The pestle is a heavy stick, the end of which is used for pounding and grinding, and the mortar is a bowl. The substance is ground between the pestle and the mortar. A food processor (for wet ingredients) or a coffee grinder (for dry ingredients) can often be used to mechanise the same process.
