1. Banzara Chicken Kebab
The Mughal rule in India, which lasted from the 15th to the mid-19th century, left us with a style of cuisine that we love and have made into our own. Mughlai food is distinct and rich with flavour from the fragrant spices, nuts and dried fruit used as the key ingredients in recipes, and is very popular today. Here are some Mughlai recipes from the cookery show Rannaghar that we got for you right here. Try them out today!
