STEEL FLAME AND SPICE
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 . Bowls will arrive lightly oiled (veg oil)
The authentic Birmingham Balti is a one pot dish- cooked and served in the same balti dish, traditionally one bowl per person/serving. Check out our specially designed wooden stand for ease and style when serving your balti.
