Kadai Fire Bowls
What is a Kadai Fire Bowl?
A kadai is a traditional cooking bowl, that has been used at weddings, celebrations, festivals and on the streets of India for centuries.
The word ‘kadai’ or ‘karai’ (as it is also known) is an Indian dish – and is where we get the English word ‘curry’.
Kadai fire bowls are traditionally hand made from shaped metal plates, riveted together using age-old techniques.
A fire was lit beneath the kadai and a curry cooked inside it. The size of the kadai used was dictated by the number of people that needed to be fed.
A very clever fellow (Christo) realised that if you could have a fire underneath, you could also put one inside.He developed a range of stands for the kadai to sit on and the kadai fire bowl was born! The next step was to make grills to sit in the kadai, it then also became a barbecue. Today an an ever-expanding range of cookware means you can now cook anything you fancy outdoors on a kadai fire bowl that you could in a conventional indoor kitchen.
These Kadai Fire Bowls have been sold in the UK since RHS Chelsea 2006 are as such the original and best!
Dear Hamish, just to let you know we love our Kadai, thank you so much for such quick delivery.
We have received the Kadai yesterday, in good order. It looks VERY good, we are very happy with it!
Hi Hamish Thank you so much...the Kadai arrived in perfect time. Hopefully the sun will come out at the weekend and we'll get to use it! Best wishes, Susie
Hi Hamish, thanks so much for our lovely fire bowl.
Dear Hamish - Just to say we are very thrilled with our Kadai that we bought from you at Henley, and have used it during the winter as well as the warmer months. New year’s eve saw over 6 barrows of logs burnt into the early hours. Fabulous. Please find attached a picture of warming it up in readiness for the new year’s eve party. And using the pizza oven makes a great social event too!
Morning Hamish. Thanks for the great service and help with my purchase. It is exactly what I wanted and delivery was spot on. Really appreciate the help.
They have arrived! We are sat with ours lit right now and we love it!
