The Le Creuset Balti Dish features a flat base for use on the hob, and can also be used under the grill and in the oven. Balti is a cooking method that traces its roots to Baltistan in Northern Pakistan. Similar to Indian curries, Balti dishes typically include marinated meats, vegetables and spices. The food is cooked and served in the wok-like bowl, then shared among the table with a naan bread. Because it’s crafted of durable cast iron, the bowl cooks food evenly and retains heat longer. The unique enamel finish is durable and easy to clean. It also looks beautiful when presented at the table!
