Transcript:Quick Tips: How to Make a Balti Curry Spice Blend
Hi, I'm Elaine Lemm for the About.com British and Irish food site and today I'm going to show you how to make a Balti Spice Mix for a traditional British Balti, and the most important thing in any spice mix, is that you use really fresh spices to bring out the best of the aromas and flavours.
Ingredients for Balti Curry Spice Blend
For our spices today, we have Garam Masala, sugar, ground coriander, cumin, cinnamon, ground cloves, turmeric and 4 lightly crushed cardamom pods.
Mixing Together the Balti Curry Spice Blend
We're just going to quickly mix these together. Once those are mixed together the next ingredients we need are mustard seeds, 4 finely chopped green chilies, finely chopped fresh coriander, and 4 dried curry leaves. We mix all this together and there we are, a wonderful Balti spice mix ready to use in any Balti curry be it a meat or vegetables.
