Care for your bowl:
These bowls are manufactured from pressed steel as with all authentic baltis which, as a component derived from iron, some discolouration is natural and cooking over a hot flame will eventually lead to the black patina beloved by Balti enthusiasts. Needless to say, these Balti bowls are best used on a natural gas flame to maximise the patina effect . Click here for care instructions.
Balti is the biggest culinary development on the UK curry scene since Chicken Tikka Masala became a curry staple. A method of one pot cooking, Balti was the brainchild of a Birmingham restauranteur over 40 years ago, who wanted to attract more customers beyond those from the local Pakistani community. Using a combination of spices, cooked in vegetable oil rather than ghee, Balti is a fast cooking method where the dish is both cooked and served up in the specially designed Balti pan.
