STEEL FLAME AND SPICE
Care for your bowl; These bowls are manufactured from pressed carbon steel as with all authentic baltis,which is 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 .
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.
