Authentic Pressed Steel Balti Bowl & Spices

Made in Birmingham using pressed-steel, just like the original 1970s bowls, which gave birth to this iconic dish. Our bowls represent an unlikely marriage; a marriage between the industry, wit and charm of England's second city to the spiced heat, courage and innovative flair of it's Pakistani immigrants. Balti is a celebrated part of Britain’s culinary heritage.

Our bowls have been designed for professional Balti kitchens, but are equally at home being used on a gas hob, electric stove top and even an aga! 

One bowl is sufficient for a generous Balti for one.

The Birmingham steel pressed Balti bowls are sent in a box, with an authentic Balti recipe and care guide for your bowl. A perfect gift for a curry lover. 


Care for your bowl; These bowls are manufactured from pressed 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 . 

Optional Extras:

+ Our Balti spice pot is an authentic blend of traditional Balti spices including Fenugreek leaves, Cumin, Paprika and ground coriander and is specially created for us by award winning spice experts Spice Kitchen. Spice Kitchen hand roast and grind their spices before expertly blending.

+ Spice Kitchens' Great Taste Award Winning ‘Garam Masala’ – used to make all Balti dishes. 

+ Signed copy of ‘Going for a Balti’ The Story of Birmingham’s signature dish.
