Just finished reading yet another ‘definitive’ book on curry called ‘Curry … A Global History’. In fairness the book is fairly innocuous covering all types of curry worldwide. However, the American author Coleen Taylor Sen is another curry historian who gets Balti all wrong which is summed up by the picture of shiny serving dishes. Never mind her description which starts off with the words ‘Pieces of usually precooked meat etc etc.’. Just another example of Balti baloney!
