Authentic Pressed Steel Balti Bowl & Spices

Designed and 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.

Our bowls have been designed for professional Balti kitchens, to last a lifetime of Balti cooking, but are equally at home being used on a gas hob, electric stove top, induction hob, aga and even the BBQ!

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

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 .
