I am a pakka Delhiite, and if you are one yourself or know somebody who is, you know that Delhiites take their food very seriously. It's not that we're born with it, but we're slowly but surely conditioned into becoming partial food critics, courtesy of the fantastic food that is available to us everywhere in the city. We're particularly obsessed with non-vegetarian food, owing to the great options we have here. You can even check my story on the best butter chicken outlets in Delhi, if interested. Now, the only reason why I'm going on and on about my Delhi roots is to show you that I'm a reliable authority when it comes to everything non-vegetarian. However, I won't mind admitting the fact that Lucknow food is no less scrumptious than that of Delhi's. And so when I say that the magical city of Lucknow is at least at par with Delhi, if not better, my words must come across as sufficiently credible.
During my foodacation (food vacation) in Lucknow last week, I learned a lot about Lucknow's style of cooking as well as unearth a few culinary secrets of the city. Now ultra-famous for Kebabs, Biryanis and Kormas, Lucknow's delicious discoveries were more of a necessity than a marvel.
