Lucknow is the cultural centre of India famous for its monuments, Nababs and delicious food.

The 'tehzib' or mannerism is still thriving and is a matter of pride for Lucknow folks. This is a city that still speaks the language of "aap-janab"(you sir) and the dictum of "pehle aap"(after you) is still a part of everyday life for a true Lakhnawi. It all comes naturaly to Lucknow. Lucknawi Aadab or salutation which has its own sophistication and style.

Wisdom, women and wine are the three things truly understood and respected by the Nawabs. Not a thing of condemnation but an institution it was the “kothas", where sons of Nawabs were deliberately sent to learn the culture, sophistication and respect for the fairer sex.

In this seriees of food videos from City of culture Lucknow the second is Tundi kababi. To see the first one Tokri Chat ( Basket Snack Mix )
Kabab refers to a variety of grilled/broiled meat dishes in Middle Eastern cuisine. Kebabs usually consist of lamb and beef.

The peculiar thing was its taste and digestive Greek spices used in preparation of tundi kababi. Price was also so cheap that in less than half a dollar one can have a full meal with great taste.As said by the owner Usman bhai rate and quality are their prime considerations and they have won the trust of food lover only by their consistent quality maintainance through generations and marginal profit strategy. See the video from Tundi Kababi, one of the most famous food destination in Lucknow.

Also Known as: 
Tunde Kebabi From Lucknow
The video is testimonial to Lucknowi style tunde kebab, which is prepared with much artistic way. The city is known to be rooted in its food culture, and this video is the prime example of the same.
