Nanglo is also being used for cultural purposes.

Nanglo is a flat round woven tray. It is made up of bamboo.[1] It is made up of thin bamboo pieces called Choya. To make Nanglo, Choyas are joined together at the right angles like woven threads. It is used to separate dust particles from paddy, rice, dal, beans, and other grains (winnowing). Nanglo is a part of almost every Nepali kitchen. It is mostly used in villages but it can also be found in large cities as well.
