What is Galouti kebab?
Galouti translates to “soft”! This is a non-vegetarian kebab that’s known to be mixed with multiple spices and is so soft that it can literally “melt in your mouth”.
The Galouti Kebab was supposedly invented in the 17th century in Lucknow, India. The Nawab at that time wished to devour a kebab without biting as he had teeth issues (that’s really painful okay!). It is believed that at that time, more than 150+ exotic spices were used to create this masterpiece.
How do you make the best kebab?
You can choose your meat (mutton is preferable). You need to mince it, marinate it in ground spice powder, then deep-fried mixed in gram flour, green chilies & egg batter. Once done, you can enjoy your kebabs with mint chutney! It does pack a punch!
As usual, I will share some of the best places I’ve tried Galouti Kebabs.
- Masala Library, BKC
- Jyran, Sofitel BKC
- Zaffran, Lower Parel
- Ustaadi, CST
- Kakori House, Mahim
- Namak, Sahara Star, Vile Parle
These are some of the best places I’ve had the luxury of trying these soft kebabs. If you haven’t tried them yet, do it soon as this lockdown period ends! Also, stay home, stay safe!
