You know the saying You learn something new every day? Apparently, it’s true. Or in my case, it’s partially true. Only because I’m somewhat unobservant. Or dense. Or both.
So, while I can’t really claim I learn something new every single day, I do come across something entirely novel every now and then. Something new to me. Something exciting.
Like balti. Do you know what that is? I’m pretty sure many of you foodies know what it is, but I didn’t!
So, according to Wikipedia, “a balti is a type of curry served in a thin, pressed-steel wok called a “balti bowl”. The name may have come from the metal dish in which the curry is cooked, rather than from any specific ingredient or cooking technique.”
I found out about balti only after I bought a balti wok. And I bought it because it looked interesting. Plus it was discounted. It’s become my favorite cooking pot since. It’s just the right size and I love the shape of it. I use it to cook just about anything.
In this instance, Meatball Chili. Perfect for the rainy fall nights of the past week.

Your meatball chilli looks so inviting and comforting. Perfect food for the cooling weather! I could dive straight in.
Thanks for hosting and have a great week xx
Thanks! The weather has definitely turned so it’s time for warming and comforting soups and stews.
Meatball chili is a unique way to prepare chili, wonderful! And I am with you, I have never heard of a balti pot. Why do you like it so much?
I think the shape makes it versatile. I can even use it as a fryer or a wok! And it’s a pretty pot overall. I’ve used it to cook pretty much everything!
Thanks for featuring my Bacalhau à Brás ♥ I was very happy ☻
You’re welcome. It sounds intriguing, and I’ve been trying to be more creative when it comes to serving fish to my family.
