Right...footie season has started in the UK, and people with bad teeth and poor dress sense all over the country of my birth have the option of buying, at half time, a brilliant concoction...the perfect arranged indo-english marriage, the chicken balti pie.
This delicacy, combining the unique bradford creation....the chicken "balti"...an anglo-english or...if you like ...indo-anglian ...version of the indian bhuna or karahai based preparations....in a pie crust. Preferably not a soggy pie crust.
Now, i cannot be the only person on chowhound who is a) a soccer fan and b) misses some of the more perverse and yet delicious inventions of that which is the intersection of indian, anglo indian, indo-anglian...and just plain...well odd.
Long story short....and this is truly a long shot...but has anyone by chance seen or heard at all of whether there is such a thing as a chicken balti pie to be found in toronto.
this is the pie of choice for ooohhh.....a gazzilion uk soccer fans....and i want one. ok i apologise for lowering the tone of this esteemed gathering spot, please feel free to go back to discussing more refined cuisine...but i want a chicken balti pie.
