Try This Lip-Smacking Galouti Kebab Roll For Dinner

When craving something Mughlai and delicious, we cannot forget about Galouti kebabs. These mouth-watering soft kebabs hail from Lucknow and are a Mughali delicacy.  Galouti, means "soft," as in something that melts in your mouth. The first Galaouti Kebab is supposed to have been made by Haji Mohammad Fakr-e-Alam Saheb, the creator of the Moti Pulao, and served to the court as a creamy, silky, mouthwatering treat. He substituted the best slices of lamb for the beef, seasoning it with a tenderizer and a superb concoction of over 150 exotic spices. According to legend, this kebab was especially made for the elderly Nawab Wajid Ali Shah of Lucknow since he loved meat but had weak teeth. Because the Nawab loved meat, the chefs made this kebab so that it practically melted on your lips. The minced meat was made into patties and fried in butter for a delicious finish. Galouti kebabs are a meal in themselves as they are quite filling and satiating but what's the harm in amping up their flavour? Adding Galouti kebabs to a roll is like the cherry on the cake. The soft mushy kebabs stuffed inside a Kathi roll with some green chutney and onion rings are everything you need to satiate your cravings!
