It’s almost Friday which means another #fridaycurryclub . This week I’ll be cooking a chicken balti which is a hot and spicy curry thought to have originated in the curry houses in Birmingham!. It can only be enjoyed when mopped up with fluffy naan so join me at 6.15 BST on my you tube channel https://lnkd.in/dDrnRSr
It will take about an hour, you can ask me questions plus you will have a lovely meal to enjoy at the end.
Here’s the ingredients you need if you want to cook along. Will you be joining me 👍🏽?

3cm ginger
6 garlic cloves
2 tomatoes, quartered
1½ tsp garam masala
1½ tsp cumin seeds, crushed
1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
1 tbsp full-fat Greek yogurt
Salt, to taste
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
1 tsp brown mustard seeds
1 bay leaf
1 onion, finely chopped
6–10 whole green chillies, (reduce if this is too many for you)
500g boneless chicken thigh fillets, cut into bite-size chunks
Black peppercorns, freshly ground
1 tbsp lemon juice, or to taste
Large handful of finely chopped, fresh coriander leaves

Looks lovely @dcmorris27 toning down the chillies might be a good idea 😂

if we wanted chicken tikka balti would we do the chicken tikka then add it to the balti Massala?

It was spicy but not hot. I am not sure if será no chilies are equivalent to your green chilies, but I have learned from you how cooking them is the key. It is very tasty. I’m glad we made this selection. I’m going to try something with shrimp. I’ll wait to see your Friday selection
