NOTES : "Balti- basically, a stir-fried curry- originated with a nomadic people inIndia. Now it's the most popular dish at hot Indian restaurants inEngland. "Balti houses" are more popular in England than in India, wherethe cuisine is so regional. It supposedly comes from the 'Baltistan'region in northern India- it's now part of north Pakistan- where the peoplewere nomadic and carried minimal cooking equipment."

Make it lowfat. We had this for dinner last night- it was very good and not as spicyas you might imagine. I froze the remaining Balti sauce, and next time,instead of using chicken, I will substitute garbanzo beans and/or potatoes.
