This season of Indian Premier League seems to be packed with surprises and high-octane energy. The defending champions, Chennai Superkings us at the very bottom of the Points Table, whereas, the to new teams that joined this season, Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans are proving to be quite a sensation this season. The Lucknow Super Giants team is being led by Indian Cricketer KL Rahul. It maybe recalled that the 29-year-old has also led Kings 11 Punjab in the past. With his new team, Rahul is determined to make a mark this season, but the team sure knows how to blow off some steam too.

In a recent Instagram post by the team's official handle, we got a sneak peek of the team's 'Grill And Chill' session. In a series of pictures, we saw the team enjoying a delicious, hot meal in a terrace where a special Grills and Barbecue set-up was arranged from them.

We also spotted the team's captain KL Rahul with a cup of soup, right next to a tray of Gol Gappas.

In his recent interview with Gaurav Kapoor on the ‘Breakfast With Champions’, KL Rahul revealed that since he is almost, always on a strict diet, he often ends up upsetting his mother who wants to feed him all the food she lovingly prepared. Now isn't that quite a dilemma?

KL Rahul may be one of the fittest cricketers of our times, but since he is heading the team of Lucknow and the city of Nawabs is renowned for its food, here are some Lucknow-special treats that can totally light up any terrace party.

1. Galawati Kabab: The kababs use many different kinds of tenderizers to make the meat patty especially soft. The term Galouti in fact refers to something that instantly melts in your mouth.

2. Shami Kabab: Another round-ish kabab that is often made with lamb, mutton or chicken. A special use of ground chickpeas and eggs, help hold the kebab together. The kebab is best paired with chutney and sliced onions.

3. Sheermal: You do need a bread to enjoy these yummy kebabs don’t you. Sheermal is a bread that is flavoured with milk and saffron. It is fluffy, leavened and so soft that it is no less of a delicacy on its own.
