A HALESOWEN balti has reintroduced its popular cooking sauce due to public demand.

Balti Towers on Long Lane has started selling its cooking sauce again to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

The family-run restaurant, which produces British Kashmiri cuisine, is selling the sauce for home and commercial use.

It has taken on two sales reps Lewis Potter and Sam Sproston to market the sauce and try and get it into supermarkets.

So far things have been going well with Birmingham University purchasing 80 tubs of the restaurant's Karahi sauce to serve up tasty meals to staff and students.

Members of the public can pop into the balti to purchase their own 2.5kg tub for £9.95 which will make eight or nine portions.

Part-owner Mohammed Habib (pictured above) said: "The sauce used to be stocked in Co-op and Spar stores, and after we stopped that we kept getting people asking where they could get it again.

"We also noticed over lockdown that more people are staying at home and cooking for themselves.

"So we improved the recipe and have reintroduced it and so far it's gone down really well.

"We have recently partnered with Birmingham City University and have supplied an initial 200kg of our Karahi sauce.

"This exciting opportunity for our family-run business, rooted firmly in Halesowen, has also resulted in local employment in these uncertain times.

"Lewis and Sam are now key members of our team, ensuring all sales of our sauces are overseen with the same passion we have been cooking with since 1991."

Mohammed said he hopes to be able to take on more staff as the business grows.
