A ‘Nawabi’ Feast That Hits Home

Delhi’s obsession with Mughlai food is no strange fiction. When the Mughal empire crumbled the chefs and cooks were left to fend for themselves, they set up shop in the open market areas of Old Delhi and a love affair was sealed. Now, it is next to imagine a typical feast in Delhi without your Galautis, kormas, kebabs, biryani and Rumali. Thankfully, there is no dearth of good restaurants and delivery kitchens offering the best ‘Nawabi’ experience. ‘Nawabi Kababi’ is capital’s latest cloud kitchen for all kebab lovers, looking to dine like a king in the comfort of their homes.

The Shahi Muton Galouti is tender and melts-in-your-mouth, leaving a subtle aftertaste of the special, aromatic spice blend, the Bharwan Khumb or the stuffed mushroom kebabs are perfectly smoky, charred and succulent. For a filler meal, you can also try their kebab rolls such as Gilafi Murgh Seekh Roll, Methi Malai Murgh Tikka roll. Both filling and Nawabi in their own right.  

Moving on to the mains, the Moradabadi mutton biryani is fragrant amalgamation of orange-tinged, long-grain basmati rice, tender mutton and spices so special, you don’t want to leave an ounce of that biryani behind. The Awadhi chicken biryani is much milder but equally impressive in terms of flavour. Vegetarians should definitely not miss out the Paneer Butter Masala.
