Eating in Lucknow
Eating in Lucknow you will be satisfied with everything. From traditional vegetarian dishses to all kinds of succulent meat, be it for breakfast or dinner, you will be satisfied.
Most of the time we ate breakfast at home – some parathas or cheese omelettes etc – dinner was also served at home with rice/biryani and a main dish with the usual sides – salad and yoghurt – (amazing cookery where I was staying)
Lucknow is famous for its kebabs – they are sold everywhere else, but their spice mixture is composed of different quantities – You will therefore find really soft and succulents kebabs very rich in taste.
Some kebabs would be –
- Galaouti Kebab
- Shami Kebab
- Sheekh Kebab
- Kakori Kebab
There is also a bread named Sheermal, a thick dryish paratha which is supposed to be eating with ghee or butter infused to it – usually comes in an orangish colouring. – I ate it before I could document it :/
