What Is Kakori Kebab?
Kakori kabab or Kakori Seekh Kebab is another must-try Mughlai mutton recipe that is known for its flavours and soft texture. However, it is not known to a good number of the population as this type of kebab among many others has not been popularised as a street food yet. Many may mistake it to be the rather popular Galouti Kebab, which is a famous street food in Lucknow, now available in many other states as well. But what exactly is the Kakori Kebab’s History?
- Like many other kababs, the Kakori Kebab is also known to have originated in a town of Lucknow called Kakori.
- The super soft texture of this particular kebab was invented as the then King of the region was fond of kebabs, but unable to chew the meat much due to his old age.
- This particular order from the King led to various experiments with mutton kebabs, which finally led to success in making the delicious and delicate Kakori Kebab Recipe
- The use of rich ingredients in Kakori kabab and its precise preparation plus cooking methods make it a recipe to be enjoyed occasionally.
