It appears to be a well used Tawa. A flat pan of Indian origin used to cook bread. I am sure it has other uses in Indian and likely other Asian style cooking.

That would make sense, I was in an Indian shop when I bought it about 15 years ago :)

and yes, it well used, and oddly I do use it for types of bread incl Tortilla wraps, but it makes great pancakes too (having no sides helps).

I`v never tried that but I have made a sort of rice paper/pancakes with it before, and countless other things.

and yes plenty good cooking time had (and to be had with it), I know it looks like it came out the firey pits of h3ll, and cost US equiv of 5 bucks 15 years ago, but it`s "Old Faithful" and I`d never part with it ;)

those are most often the BEST pans. I have cast iron that was passed down from my grandmothers, grandmothers, lol.
