I believe the answer is:

hashish

Here is my best explanation:

'the pot' is the definition.

(hashish is a kind of pot)

'holding his dish' is the subsidiary indication.

'holding' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'dish' becomes 'hash' (hash is a kind of dish).

'his' going within 'hash' is 'hashish'.

'and' is the link.
