The Food

Balti is the name for a style of food first devised in Birmingham, England around the 1980s. The food is a curry-style dish, taking its name from the steel or iron pot in which it is cooked and served, the balti (literally, "bucket"). Normally the balti is served with a large naan bread; fragments of the bread are dipped in and used to scoop up the curry sauce. The food and its style of presentation proved very popular, and Balti restaurants have gradually opened up throughout a large part of Britain.
