I bought a new carbon steel wok from John Lewis a few weeks ago to use instead of a karahi. This afternoon I finally got round to taking it out of the bag and have spent quite a lot of time trying to season. I’ve washed it, burnt it over a hot flame, oiled it and am now in the stage of slowly burning the oil off.
It’s a lot of work and not much fun on a hot day. I’d much rather concentrate on a new recipe for snacks to have while watching the box. Ah well.
