With in house baltis off the menu I’ve been having weekly takeaways which in some cases haven’t been the best! Chicken Korma and Butter Chicken are two culprits swimming in over creamy and sweet gloopy sauce. So when one of my favourite balti haunts, the Royal Watan, told me they were introducing several dishes to honour their grandmother, I had to give one a go. I took the risk of ordering a Balti Butter Chicken and how glad I am that I did. Yes. it was wonderfully buttery but was well spiced with just a modest portion of cream which didn’t over power the dish … a fine example of the more subtle cooking from the north west of the Indian subcontinent.
