History of Chicken Gilafi Kebab

Originating in Turkey, Afghan invaders and plunderers introduced Chicken Kebabs to India. However, it was the Mughals who played a key role in increasing the popularity of the succulent treat. Seasoned with flavoured ingredients, these Kebabs were a rustic treat. It was the Mughals who played a part in evolving the taste of this kebab by adding more flavours & aromatic spices, so it is a rich delicacy.
