Den som vill veta mer kan smaka här: "Balti owes its introduction to Birmingham's largest Pakistani and Kashmiri communities, who brought it to Birmingham in the mid-1970s through cafe style restaurants - the traditional glass topped tables beloved by balti purists are still in evidence in some of the area's balti houses. Balti now appears in the Oxford Dictionary! It means 'bucket', but is, in fact, a flat-bottomed wok. Fresh ingredients and a tantalising combination of spices are fast cooked over a high flame. It is then served up sizzling in the balti usually with a naan (bread made with special flour, yeast, eggs, milk and sugar baked in a tandoori oven). You will not be ostracised if you use cutlery, but your average local balti goer is definitely a gold medallist in naan dipping. Birmingham's balti houses are also famous for their giant naans that can literally cover a table."
