Balti Dish

Balti is adapted from a Pakistani style of cooking. The word balti means "bucket" in Punjabi and describes the vessel, actually a small, flat-bottomed, two-handled wok, in which the food is both cooked and served. This subcontinental "one-pot" meal probably arose from the nomadic and tribal lifestyles of the past.

Balti involves the fast cooking of marinated meat and spices over a high flame. Vegetables, such as spinach, potato, mushroom or aubergine (eggplant) may be added to chicken, beef, fish or prawns. Vegetarian versions of Balti are also prepared. The cooking and serving method ensures that the flavors of all the spices are retained.

A look at a Birmingham Balti menu can be a bit confusing for a first timer - it looks just like an Indian menu with its selection of dansak, korma and dopiaza dishes. The main difference, according to Munro, is that Balti dishes have very little sauce compared to Indian dishes. "There is no such thing as a Balti sauce," he said, unequivocally. "You cannot add a sauce to a dish and call it a Balti."
