The Balti Triangle is a concentration of 50 Balti restaurants in Birmingham. This recipe is endorsed by the Birmingham City Council. A balti curry is a curry cooked over a high flame with spiced fresh meat and/or vegetables then cooked again with extra spices and served in the traditional round-bottomed balti dish (similar to a Japanese danobe or a flat-bottomed wok). Birmingham has balti cook-offs just as the U.S. loves its chili cook-offs. In June 2012, a collection of Indian restaurants in Birmingham have teamed up to have the ingredients of the Balti dish protected by EU legislation. Palm sugar can be found in the Thai food section. Serve piping hot in balti dishes with naan breads on the side.
