Kakori kebab, the stories tell was first prepared by the cooks of the Nawab of Kakori in Awadh, who had lost his teeth but not the craving for Kebabs. These kebabs are so soft that they melt in the mouth. The cooks say that there should be the right proportion of papaya mixed with minced meat for the kakoris to have this softness.
In Delhi, I have had Kakori at two places and have liked them at both of these
I first had it at “Aap ki Khatir barbeque”, which was at the Humayun’s tomb near Nizammudin. But later had to move to a place around 50 metres away from its awesome location. Jagmohan found it not worthy of being so close to a heritage monument.
The second place I had Kakoris was at Delhi Haat’s Awadh stall… I think the stall’s named Shaan-e-Awadh or something similar.
Do you know of any other place that serves this delicious kebab? I have heard about Al-Kauser but have still to try it there.
