Street food in Lucknow

Lucknow food has its distinguished identity. It has given us Kebabs, Kormas, Kaliya, Kulchas, Roomali Rotis, Zarda and what not. Lucknow has a grounded street food culture and it is a culinary paradise for those who love exotic tastes. Food in Lucknow has a legacy of its own.

My favorite of the dumplings is aushak. It’s made with a delicate dough and is traditionally filled with gandana, a member of the onion family with a mild flavor and an appearance similar to leeks.

The recipe is for lamb kebab made with a marinade that takes less than five minutes to pull together and is quite delicious. The chutney that accompanies the kebab is a little different than what I’m used to eating.
