'Best ever chicken balti'

I found this in a magazine several years ago now.  I thought it looked pretty good so I tried it and it was absolutely scrummy.  Since then I have made it again and again and it's still a favourite.  So easy to make and packed with flavour, I made it last week when N came over on Friday, and she had seconds!

The recipe is here, on, so I won't reproduce it in full.  |Please do pop over and take a look.

I haven't changed anything much over the years, just a few things.  I start by gently saute-ing some finely chopped onion in butter before frying out the curry sauce.  Also, I have added other veg at times - red or yellow pepper goes nicely, as does strips of baby corn, quartered lengthways.  I think it would also be nice made with lean lamb, turkey or steak.

I have also seen a suggestion that you use coconut milk rather than cream at the end.  That sounds nice.  I have used yoghurt instead and, providing you are careful not to over-boil, it works well.


  1. Looks lovely thanks. Personal recommendation is always the best:)

  2. I hope you enjoy it, if you make it. Thanks, Sweffling.
