One of Lucknow’s most famous dishes that has been interwoven with the history of the place is the “Galouti Kebab”.

Tunday Kebabi at Aminabad and Chowk is a must go place if you want such mouth melting kebabs.
Ghutwa Kebab has long been considered a piece de resistance in the Awadhi dastarkhwan. Introduced by the Shia Nawabs of Awadh, it was originally prepared from mutton mince in Lagan. The mince for the kebab comes from the raan ki machhli (tendon of the leg of mutton) much like the galawat kebab.
Made from thin layers of mutton after marinating with papaya, it is barbequed on a coal fire grill. The mutton pasanda is served with chaat masala, which gives it a heavenly flavor. Don’t forget to eat it along with onions and lemon.

Seekh Kebab is one of the most famous dishes of Awadhi cuisine and is known for its soft texture and aroma. It is roasted in skewers and served with Sheermal or as Starters. Don’t forget Green Chutney along with it.
Gola a kind of rolled meat ball, the shape of the kebab resembles to that of the cannons or ‘gola’s , that is why it is named gola kebab.
