Is wok ok for Indian cooking?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

Recently i have started make a lot of Indian food. I started looking for a saute pan - something that has lid !!! . Than i looked on many different wok types apparently carbon steal woks are the best deal. 

 

Can you please advice me?

 

Btw ... what do you think about these woks?

There are plenty of similarities between a wok and a karahi and theories that one derives from the other, theories going both directions.

 

However, the longer-wetter-cooler cooking times for indian food can be problematic for iron or carbon steel woks and their patina. So I usually just use a 12" skillet or a sauteuse or even a dutch oven in stainless steel or ceramic coated cast iron. Also a pressure cooker works well with many Indian dishes.
