A wok-like cooking dish, traditionally used over the centuries on the North-Western extremities of the Indian sub-continent. Probably by nomadic tribes who used it for one-pot-cooking. In the British West Midlands the karai has been re-invented as the "balti". Possibly more as a display device that a cooking tool - except in the most authentic of restaurants.
