New Anglo Indian Chef Balti kit

These are of the Balti I made this morning. It's so easy and tastes sooo good!! 

Having fried the whole spices until fragrant we now add the onion, pepper and chilli and fry for 1-2 minutes.Vegetables and spices frying in a wok
Now I have added the spice blend and a teaspoon of salt.

Spices and salt added to the pan

This mixture is stirred around to coat the ingredients with the spices.

Stirring to coat the ingredients
The base sauce has been added along with 400ml of hot water and again stirred around to mix thoroughly. As this is done, the sauce thickens and the tomato pure is added, and we keep frying gently until the oil starts to separate.

The sauce mix and water have been added to the pan, forming a thin sauce
We now add the quartered tomatoes and, if it's ready, the chicken. (For this curry I've cooked tandoori chicken, but it's not quite ready to add at this stage).

The tomatoes have been added to the pan

Here is the chicken just prior to grilling.
