Balti

A balti is also a dish cooked in a karahi, though in this case the term likely originated in Birmingham England. Baltis are based on the food of Baltistan, an area of Pakistan close to the Chinese border, that is home to a sizable ethnic Tibetan population. As such, baltis are differently spiced and contain somewhat different ingredients as compared to general Pakistani food, having more of a Kashmiri and Afghan influence. Balti is the name for a one-pot Pakistani style of curry that is very popular in Britain. Balti food first appeared in the UK in the late 1960s when immigrants from north Pakistan settled in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham
