The Galouti Kebab or Galawati Kebab is made of minced mutton and is a star Awadhi dish. A raw papaya paste is traditionally used to tenderise the meat. Lucknowi folklore has it that Galawati Kebab was created for an aging, toothless Nawab Wajid Ali Shah. Galawati means 'melt in your mouth' and was perfect for the old ruler.
