Galouti kebabs are a gift from South Asia, made of minced goat and green papaya, traditionally used to tenderize the meat, and it’s a hallmark of Awadhi cuisine.
The home of this kebab is Lucknow. Legend has it that the galouti kebab was created for an aging Nawab Wajid Ali Shah of Lucknow who lost his teeth, but not his passion for meat dishes. Galawati means “melt in your mouth, ” and this dish contains more than 100 aromatic spices.
While the seekhs and tikkas are an all time favourite anyway, there’s something about Galauti kebabs that makes you want to eat more, and Lucknowi Zaika in Noida’s Brahmaputra Market serves kebabs exactly like that – tender, melt in the mouth with beautiful flavours and it goes perfectly with Ulte Tawe Ka Paranthas, and Mint chutney, one plate of the combo costs 100 Rupees, it’s a full meal in itself and super heavy, but your taste buds are definitely going to thank you for having it.
