Fantastic. As a Brit living in the US this is one of the comforting icons of Englishness I relish when I come home.

I'm of Asian origin so probably biased, but no matter where I am in England the one thing I can guarantee is that I will find somewhere that will serve this delicious dish. I'm fortunate in that I know a diverse range of people from all races, faiths and socio-economic backgrounds, however, the one thing I can be assured of is that we all love a good balti!

I believe rice, peas and jerk chicken is an Icon of England.
