 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3       T            Vegetable oil
    4                    Onions, chopped
                         Small piece of ginger,
                         Peeled and grated
    1                    Large garlic clove, crushed
    1                    Tomato, chopped
    1       T            Paprika
      1/2   t            Turmeric
      1/2   t            Cumin (ground)
      1/2   t            Ground coriander
    1       t            Chili powder
                         Fresh chopped coriander
                         (a handful)
                         Salt to taste
 
   Heat the oil in a large saucepan over moderate heat.  Fry the onions,
 ginger and garlic until the onions are translucent.  Add the tomato and
 stir-fry, breaking it up with the spoon.  Pour in 300 ml / 1/2 UK pint
 water, and stir in the other ingredients.  Bring to the boil.  Lower heat,
 cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.   Pour
 into a blender or food processor and liquidize.
   (Note:  this is only one formula of thousands possible.  There’s no more
 a single recipe for Balti sauce than there’s a single recipe for chili.
 Some cooks like more garlic, some more chili powder;  some use fresh
 chilies as well:  some add yogurt, coconut, cream...you name it.)
