Balti currys were originally prepared using a typical thin wok called 'balti bowl'. Patak's Balti Spice Paste captures the mixed essence of eleven aromatic spices, including garlic, paprika, and cumin with the deep, and rich oily flavour. It can be made into an excellent marinade if combined with plain yogurt, which can be used in meats for baking, barbecuing or grilling.
