Their Nihari is to die for, and you can get it only if you can reach there before 12 in the afternoon. Their Badam Pasanda is so good, your mind will be blown once you’ve licked off every bit of it from your plate and fingers. Even their regular Mutton Qorma is pretty damn good. You have to eat it to believe it.

Everything at Ghalib’s comes highly recommended, but you need to try their Mutton Seekh Kebabs. So soft and juicy, you’re instantly transported to an ambiance where Qawwali singers serenade you with their tunes. They have limited seating but the food is worth the wait.

The Delhi Canteen

You need to ring up The Delhi Canteen for it’s scrumptious Mutton Belliram and Mutton Nihari. If you’ve been craving for some spicier preparations, you should go there just for their Laal Maas ki Handi. So good, that you’ll be dreaming of it for days after.

Andhra Bhavan Canteen

One does not simply list down places for great mutton dishes, and not mention Andhra Bhavan’s Mutton Fry. If you’ve ever known anyone who’s been there, you will be told about the long queue that you have to stand in, just to get in. Now you know why.

Afghan Darbar

Located in Lajpat Nagar, this hidden gem of a place is run by a couple from Afghanistan. The Mutton Chopan Kebab and Mantu (steamed dumplings made with chopped mutton and topped with yogurt and dal sauce) come highly recommended. The other great thing about this place is that the prices aren’t too high, and the portions are generous.
