Rafi's Spice Box - Balti Spice Mix (Mild) - serves 4-6
Curry and fenugreek (methi) leaves add savoury tones to this tangy, tomato-based curry. Cook it slowly with the lid off for a thick, concentrated sauce. The perfect curry to scoop up with naan bread.
Origin of the name: Balti means a bucket in India, but in Baltistan, the northern-most region of Pakistan, it is a wok-shaped utensil which this sauce is cooked in.
Try it with: A combination of poultry or fish and veg - our favourite is prawns and peas.
