Lamb Balti. I had good lamb balti tonight at an Indian restaurant in South Kensington. Wikipedia says:
The name Balti food has nothing to do with an ethnic group living in India and Pakistan who are also called Balti. These Balti people are Tibetan Muslims. The food 'Balti' is named after the pot in which it is cooked. Balti food is a Punjabi recipe and prepared mainly in the Punjabi way.
The food is a hot curry-style dish, most likely taking its name from the thick flat-bottomed steel or iron pot in which it is both cooked and served. Normally the balti is served with large naan bread...
Balti combines the spices and ingredients of North Indian cuisine with the economics and efficiencies of Chinese cooking.
