Balti is an Indian dish, which may have originated in Northwest Pakistan. It is a form of a meat curry, but one that's cooked quickly (like a stir-fry. The spice mix used to flavor the dish is a combination of seeds (coriander, cardamom, cumin, black mustard, fennel, wild onion, and fenugreek). It can be made as either a masala paste or used dry.
History: The name comes from the cast-iron pot "balti," in which it was originally both made and served. Now the term "balti" seems to refer to the food, and the pot is called a "karahi." In some parts of the world, the dish is also called karai, or karah.
