Mughlai Recipes: Imagine you’ve got a box full of Nihari gosht, succulent mutton boti kebabs or aromatic biryani for lunch at work. Would you ever trade it with anyone? These Mughlai dishes are simply untradeable; we would in fact go, hide in a corner and eat it all alone. Our love for Mughlai cuisine goes back to the times of Mughal Empire and their royal kitchens, when the Mughlai cuisine represented a mix of Indian cuisine with that of the Persian. The latter existed well before the Mughlai was originated which explains certain Persian names of the Mughlai dishes.
