Kebabs are heartwarming, delicious, satisfying appetizers. One similar of this nature is the melt in the mouth and very famous Mutton Galouti Kebab from Lucknow cuisine. When one makes it at home it definitely tastes different, try not to fry in clarified butter or dalda. Overnight marination results in firming up the membranes to make it extra melting.
