Galouti Kebab Masala – One of the most famous dishes out of the Indian city of Lucknow, ‘Galouti Kebab’ has a very interesting story behind its name.
It is said that the Galouti kebabs were first made in the eighteenth century for Asaf-ud-Daula, who was the Nawab Wazir of Oudh. He was fond of trying new and delicious food items, but overindulgence turned him obese. As a result, his health began to worsen, he lost his teeth, but his love for food didn’t fade. So the royal cooks came up with a dish called Galouti Kebabs made with minced meat, spices and were so soft that they didn’t require chewing!
Galouti literally translates as ‘melt in the mouth’.
