The history of Awadh cuisine is a long and fascinating one, stretching back into the depths of Indian history. At The Nawab’s Kitchen, we honor the Awadh tradition every single day, and we strive to live up to its high standards and its royal heritage.
Awadh cuisine is native to the capital of Uttar Pradesh in Northern India, a city known as Lucknow. Taking cues from the cuisine of the Middle East and Central Asia as well as neighboring parts of Northern India, Awadh cuisine encompasses a wide variety of both vegetarian and meat-based dishes.
At The Nawab’s Kitchen, we take the prestige of Awadh cuisine very seriously, and we work hard to make every dish we serve worthy of the kings and queens who have historically enjoyed these very special meals. The originators of Awadh were the inventors of the dum style of cooking, and this proud condition continues to this day.
The dum style of cooking involves cooking food slowly and carefully over a low fire. This low and slow style of cooking enhances the flavor of vegetarian dishes, brings out the best in all manner of meats and creates food that is truly worthy of the royal class.
Awadh cuisine is known for its elaborate spreads and its wide variety of dishes, and you can find all of those royal indulgences when you visit The Nawab’s Kitchen. The proud chefs of the Awadh tradition have hand crafted the best rotis, kebabs and other Indian delights in town, creating a true delight for the senses and letting everyone indulge in food that was once reserved for royalty.
The Awadh tradition is also distinguished by its rich spices, including such Indian specialties as saffron, Mace,rooh kevda,cardamom etc. But unlike some styles of cooking, Awadh cuisine uses these powerful spices carefully, incorporating them into the finished dishes in a way that is pleasing without being overpowering. The saffron,cardamom and all other spices or material at The Nawab’s Kitchen is always fresh, but the meats, vegetables and other great ingredients are still the stars of the show – and the centerpiece of every dish that comes out of our kitchen.
