Pasta Balti Chicken

My husband had a Fan Fare Party at work and asked me to make some food for his office party.
I asked my hubby how about “Chicken & Paste Balti” and the answer was ‘perfect’ because I had made this once before.
They had a great party at work and everyone liked it.

Try it … I am sure you will like it as well.


  • Small Pasta Shells – 3 cups
  • Chicken – 1 Lb
  • Corn Oil – 5 tbsp
  • Curry Leaves – 4
  • Whole Dried Red Chillies – 4
  • Onion – 1, large, sliced
  • Garlic Pulp – 1 tsp
  • Chili Powder – 1 tsp.

  • Fresh Root Ginger – 1 tsp, shredded
  • Pomegranate Seeds – 1 tsp, crushed
  • Salt – 1 tsp
  • Tomatoes – 2 medium, chopped
  • Chickpeas – 2 cups, drained
  • Corn – 1 cup
  • Snow Peas – 1 Cup, diagonally sliced
  • Fresh Coriander – 1 tbsp, chopped
  • Tomato Ketchup – 1 Table Spoon



  1. Cook the pasta in boiling water, following the directions on the pack. Add 1 tbsp of the oil to the water to prevent the pasta from sticking together. When it is cooked, drain and set to one side in a sieve.
  2.  Heat the remaining oil in a deep round frying pan and add the curry leaves, whole dried chillies and the onion. Fry for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic, chili powder, ginger, pomegranate seeds, salt and tomatoes. Stir-fry for about 3 minutes.
  4. Next add the cubed chicken, chickpeas, corn and  snap peas  to the onion mixture. Cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the pasta and stir well. Cook for a further 7-10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  6.  Garnish with the fresh coriander.
  7. Serve it hot.
