Balti chicken qualifies as a fried curry, spicy and a thick and richly flavoured balti curry. This Balti curry has plenty of nicely spiced gravy and a really fresh taste with warming background heat.

Balti, as a food, is named after the steel or iron pot in which it is cooked. The word is found in Urdu, Hindi and Bengali, and means “bucket.” The word developed from the Portuguese ‘balde’, meaning bucket or pail, and traveled to South Asia via the Portuguese seafaring enterprises of the early sixteenth century. One can deduce that the word made its way into the English language during British colonial rule of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Balti is a type of curry served in a thin, pressed-steel wok called a “balti bowl”. It is served in Indian restaurants throughout the UK, and the term refers to the pot in which the curry is cooked, rather than to any specific ingredient or cooking technique.

There are several ideas about the origin of balti-style dishes. It is thought that it was invented in Birmingham, while others believe it originated in northern Pakistan in the region called Baltistan, and then came to Britain.
