Kitchen of Awadh Best Dishes to Try Out
MUTTON GALOUTI KEBAB- It is the super soft melt in the mouth, as expected. Spices made their presence felt. The kebab was not overloaded with oil but was quite tasty in spite of that. Really nice. Although the kebabs are so soft that it’s quite a task to transfer the kebab from the tray to the plate.
VEG GALOUTI KEBAB- the vegetarian galouti kebab made from raw jackfruit is quite outstanding. Very close to the original galouti. This kebab retained the flavors and taste of jackfruit while giving a feel of the meat kebab. It’s really fragile and breaks off at the slightest provocation.
ULTE TAWA KA PARATHA- This paratha is going to be the second favorite paratha of yours after your mom’s made paratha. Made with desi ghee this paratha is a treat to your mouth. Flavors of the ghee were prominent and enjoyable but still, the paratha was not oily at all. A mild sweetness defined the taste. It’s soft within and has a crisp, flaky outside layer.
MUTTON DUM BIRYANI- the next dish to hit you with its mind-blowing taste is the mutton dum biryani itself. it is served in an earthen Matka, authentic style. Wrapped neatly in the foil they seal the mouth of the pot with dough. The biryani has long aromatic grains of rice with subtle 3-4 pieces of the meat.
