This Balti curry recipe is a delicious rich tomato based curry dish. In this recipe we like to use pumpkin when it’s in season but you can easily use sweet potato or butternut squash and make it any time of year. We like to leave the skin on our veg where possible as thats where lots of the fibre is. Balti curry recipes like many Indian dishes uses a lot of spices to give a great depth of flavour but don’t worry if you don’t have all the ground spices to hand you can simply use curry powder and a bit of chilli if you like. We love this recipe as it’s really adaptable to whatever you have in the fridge and cupboard, simply use your favourite veg and cooked beans and any leafy greens you like.
