In adding a chapter to a proposed new reprint of my book ‘Going for a Balti’, I commissioned a survey amongst Brummies about their awareness of the authentic dish. Alarmingly, less than a quarter surveyed knew what was the authentic culinary article.

I also noticed that the Visit Birmingham website, in its reference to Balti, showed restaurants who weren’t purveyors of the real thing and even featured shiny stainless steel dishes … balti blasphemy! In fairness, following my plea, they have rectified this so that, at least, visitors will be able to recognise!’
