There was a ruler of Lucknow in the Kakori region in British times, Nawab Syed Mohammad Haider Kazmi. He organized a gathering for one of his British friends in the mango season. The Nawab served the best of Awadhi cooking for his companions, including the exceptionally well known seekh kebabs.

His luxurious hospitality took a noteworthy difficulty when one of his friends made a mean comment about the course and chewy surface of the Seekh Kebabs. The irritated Nawab asked his royal chefs to plan a delicate form of those kebabs.

The royal chefs spent numerous days in the regal kitchen to make a more refined variation of the kebabs. And afterwards, around ten days they thought of what is presently known as the Kakori Kebabs. These kebabs have a fine, delicate and smooth surface.

The utilization of ‘Maliabali’ mangoes to soften the meat and a large group of diverse flavours, was the mystery behind the non-abrasiveness of these kebabs and their particular flavour.

Along with the regions of Kakori, these kebabs are famous in the whole area of Awadh and brought forth the craft of utilizing crude natural products (like crude mango and papaya) as tenderizers in kebab formulas. Kakori kebab is an extraordinary idea for a supper or lunch party.
