Food is an integral part of people's lives. But when it comes to the Nawabon ka seher Lucknow, it's in the heart and soul of the people.
The spices and the authentic taste of Awadhi cuisine would definitely be tantalizing your taste buds and once you taste the foods, you'll surely be embraced with the opulence.
During my 3 day trip to Lucknow, I tried to eat and explore as much as I could.
Let me tell you my Gastronomic journey here in Lucknow:
1. Sharma Ji Ki Chai:
It is said that many people near the Hazratganj area don't kick start their day without sipping the piping hot chai from the Kulhad filled with love from the Sharma's. Also, they serve a soft bun filled with white Makkhan (Bun Maska) which goes really well with the Chai. Their samosa is unique too. It's a bit round in shape, filled with really delicious aloo. If anyone is fond of Poha like me, Sharma ji won't disappoint them; as well. Now one might think why people are so crazy about the Chai. Chai is not too sweet or not too milky. It's a perfect balance of both. First the cups will be filled with milk and tea would be poured into the cups. That will give the chai a nice frothy texture.
