The one-armed kebab, heavenly halwa & other Awadhi stories

October 05, 2018  •  3 Comments

Lucknow, 1 October 2018

Cyrus at Tornos took me on a culinary walk to some of Lucknow's most authentic & well-established roadside eateries in the Chowk district. This was street food before the term was invented. Awadi cuisine is the Persian-inspired cuisine of the Nawabs in fusion with other Asian & Middle Eastern influences.

Amongst the many kebabs I tasted (in between photographing the chefs) was the Tunday Kababi created by a one-armed chef more than 100 years ago. Legend has it, the Tunday is flavoured with 160 different spices. To this day, roadside chefs recreate this very same kebab using just one arm!

Bon appétit!

On en a l'eau à la bouche. La cuisine indienne est une grande cuisine que nous les français nous ne connaissons pas bien. Les savants mélanges d'épices sont réalisés par les maîtresses de maison ou les restaurateurs ce qui fait que le même plat peut avoir mille variantes.
La cuisine de rue, où l'on mange sur le pouce est l’ancêtre de la "street food" européenne. Dans toutes les rues se dégagent une bonne odeur et la convivialité de ces petits restaurants de rue est vraiment très sympa.
Merci à Brenda pour ses jolies photos. Mes préférées sont la 1ère et la 7ème car elles ont des angles de prise de vue originaux.
