For you Rico,
Greetings.
This is of one of my findings.
The "podd" measures 1.024 litres according to the methods I have used.
It can be used to measure rice, solam, salt, dry fish & prawns.
Now, if it is plain water, it could be taken as 1 kg. Rice works out
to be roughly 0.75 kg. So also the weight of other items will vary.
I once checked out with the Legal Metrology officials so they could
move to leagalise it, but it found no favour with them.
There are also more measures; smaller ones like ginnati, onnati, etc
which are fractions of podd and monn which is a multiple of podd.
One good source of info and pictures is the dean's palace in Quepem town.

Recently, I came across a reference to a *khandi,* and was quite puzzled.
There are hardly any references online to this old style of calculating
paddy yields, field sizes and seed-inputs required for cultivation.
