Galouti kebab, also known as, galawati kebab is a popular Lucknawi preparation made with finely minced meat – the meat usually being lamb or goat. The name ‘Galouti’ means melt in the mouth, and true to its etymology, the dish does melt in the mouth owing to the finesse of the mince. This kebab was created especially for the aging Nawab Wajid Ali Shah of Lucknow who had lost all his teeth but continued to be a connoisseur of good food, particularly meat. Hence, the royal kitchen devised this brilliant melt in the mouth and easy to eat Galouti Kebab.
