In recent times, Indian food has frequently won global recognition through Taste Atlas rankings. The popular food and travel guide often publishes lists of best-rated delicacies from around the world. Among the latest accolades shared on social media is a list of the '50 Best Lamb Dishes In The World'. It is based on rankings as of March 2024. We were proud to note that two Indian dishes made it to the top 30. Rogan Josh from Kashmir was ranked 26th while Galouti Kebab from Lucknow was ranked 27th.

The former has been described as being "characterised by tender meat and a thick, fiery red sauce coming from deseeded Kashmiri chillies," on the guide's official site. As for the kebab, Taste Atlas has shared one theory about its origins. "The name galouti means soft, referring to a belief that Haji Mohammad Fakr-e-Alam Saheb, who first made the dish, gave it to Nawab Asad-ud-Daula, who was toothless and needed a kebab variety which required no chewing."
