Care for your bowl: These bowls are manufactured from carbon 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)

About Birmingham Balti Bowl Co.

At Cooking Kneads we will forever champion traditional and locally made cookware. That’s why it was a no brainer when it came to stocking this authentic range of Indian cookware from the Birmingham Baltic Bowl Co.

Brought back into commission in 2017 by Balti expert and historian Andy Munro, these traditional bowls are made in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter from high quality carbon steel. This thin steel develops a patina overtime and will actually improve with age. 

The Birmingham Balti Bowls really are a must have for all curry devotees!
