It’s thought that balti might’ve originated in Baltistan, North Pakistan, but it’s now become something of a British classic, with the greatest concentration of balti restaurants in the ‘Balti Triangle’ area of Birmingham.

The classic balti is spicy, rich and buttery making it perfect with mushrooms.

First attempt; - Garlic Mushroom Balti - Onion Bhaji - Mango Chutney - Garlic and Coriander Rice..

Yummy! The onion bhajis look perfectly crispy- it's hard to believe this was a first attempt, well done!


Lamb Balti, Pilau Rice, Bombay Potatoes, Chilli Raita and Cucumber Raita. At home date night was a success! Pleasure to cook together and eat. Food was full of flavour. Can't wait for the next one.

Amazing, we love a rich and buttery Balti and the sauce looks so flavoursome- perfect date night food! We look forward to seeing your future Spicery creations!


The recipe suggested "raising the game" with Mixed Peppers. So I went half way I did the dish with a mixture of peppers and brtown Mushrooms and then added a Leek. Just delicious and I made so much there will be loads in the freezer for a "Rainy Day"

YUM looks like a brilliant Balti- spicy, rich and buttery!


1st recipe from my new book, (lovely gift from my dearest friend) Easy to cook and tasted amazing!

Looks great, Stuart - nice one! You're well on your way to becoming a Curry Legend!


Really nice, personally I'd be tempted to add even more garlic next time to make it bangin!

No such thing as too much garlic in our opinion! Nice work, Lauren!


This has been a firm favourite with many of my family for a while. However this was the first time I had made it. It was very good indeed. I was able to buy some nice mushrooms and the recipe really did them justice. Thanks Spicery!

That looks like a rich, delicious Garlic Mushroom Balti - great job, Robin!
