Khara Masala Balti Chicken
This is a quick and easy Balti curry which uses whole spices (khara) rather than ground spices. It’s a hot little number – reduce chilis if you want – and quite a dry curry so is best eaten with a simple raita and garlic chapati.

Titli's Tips
This is a stir-fry curry which gives only a little gravy. Adjust the chillis to suit your taste.
