The Balti Bowl by Harper’s Hill – Gift Set

(3 customer reviews)


  Delivery is free on all orders over £25!

Pre-seasoned and good to go!
It’s time to cook a real balti at home.

This gift set includes x2 bowls and x2 bases – the perfect compliment to any home, and a fantastic gift!

The Balti Bowl by Harper’s Hill is the perfect gift for all foodies and curry-lovers alike, and our balti bowl bases provide that finishing touch of character.


Our bowl is based around the iconic balti bowl developed by curry chefs back in the 70’s, when curry chefs started to make their dishes lighter, healthier and served faster to suit Western tastes. They commissioned the original pressed steel bowl from a pressings company based in Smethwick. Just a stones throw from where Harper’s Hill are based.

Made from sustainable acacia wood, the base will help protect table surfaces when serving and that little something to the overall presentation of your Balti.

Giving something back.

The Harper’s Hill team want to share our journey, and hopefully success, by giving back to the West Midlands community by way of donating £1 to Acorns Children’s Hospice for every Balti Bowl sold.

The Harper’s Hill Balti Bowl is produced using top quality carbon steel perfect for the Balti style of stir frying over a very high heat. The Balti bowl is a cooking and serving pan for the Balti, a simple one pot method of high-heat, fast cooking using a mix of spices and vegetable oil. Here at Harper’s Hill we go the extra mile. Our bowls are pre-seasoned/coated with an oil based natural coating. This means you can use your bowl as soon as it arrives!

What is a Balti bowl?

Using a combination of spices, off-bone meat or vegetables, cooked with vegetable oil rather than ghee, Balti is a fast cooking method where the dish is both cooked and served up in the specially designed Balti pan. The Balti bowl plays a key role in the emergence of what is now known globally as Birmingham’s own dish, and Harper’s Hill is part of that heritage of having been based in Birmingham and surrounding area for over 140 years.

Restaurant users and those of you with a true love of making your own curry will fall in love with our pressed steel Balti bowls. Our authentic bowls are pre-seasoned, and develop their true patina over time, offering the curry connoisseur the true essence of this iconic British/Pakistani tradition.

One of our bowls equals one serving of Balti.

How we season our bowls

We brush the entire surface of the bowl, including the handles in a light vegetable or sunflower oil.

They are then placed in our hot ovens where the oil sticks and coats the bowl.

This is repeated until the bowl has the necessary non-stick coating, each bowl develops its own unique patina which will only enrich as it is used.

Where can our Balti bowls be used?

Our bowls are suitable for use on gas, electric and induction hobs, Aga cookers, and even barbecues!

Caring for your Harper’s Hill Balti Bowl 

It is important that you wash your Balti bowl by hand, in warm water after every use using little or no soap. Wipe with a sponge to loosen food stuck to the bowl surface. Please remember that these bowls are made from steel and therefore should be thoroughly dried to avoid rusting.

If you plan on not using the bowls for an extended period of time, please ensure that they are seasoned properly before storage.

    My New Favourite Cooking Pans


    I have used many balti bowls over my 20 year curry cooking hobby. A set of these were given to me last xmas. I have used these ever since and passed on my old pans to friends. They have blackened beautifully and my Balti’s are tasting better than ever. I am using firm silicon spatula spoons for cooking and serving.
