Chicken Balti


Hello everyone, if you want to try making your own curry at home this weekend then try my recipe for Chicken Balti. I like to make this in a big batch and put some in the freezer for a later date.

Don’t be put off by the longish list of ingredients for this recipe. A fair few of them you may already have in your store cupboard. If you don’t have the spices to hand then they are worth the investment. You can use them as a base in number of curry recipes and are fairly cheap to buy from the supermarket.

I make curry quite a lot at home. My latest being a chicken meatball coconut curry. I’ll get that typed up and shared soon.
