Lucknawi style Vegetarian Kebab


I grew up in the "City of Nawabs", Lucknow and am easily identifiable with my "Lehza" or way of speaking no matter wherever in the world I may be. The "aap" and "pehle aap" are very dear to my heart.


Kebabs is a food synonymous with Lucknow albeit non-vegetarian varieties like the galawati kebab, which tops the charts. Nevertheless, being a vegetarian one should not be at a disadvantage. So here I am presenting the Vegetarian kebabs from a Lucknawi.
