Mughal dishes have always been the specialty of the Indian chefs but the history of kebabs dates to the time when the Mughals invaded India or then called, Hindukush. As the name is derived from the Sanskrit language, the term means the land of resources. Seeing an opportunity in the land and Mughals getting stronger erstwhile brought the concept of food on the move. while many people prefer these mouth-watering kebabs, they don't know how it was invented. The Indian restaurant Somerville has reproduced the actual image of having a great dish without many arrangements yet tastefully bliss.
The history of the cuisine
In this modernized world, we know kebabs to be made of meat which is spiced up to match a flavor and grilled perfectly to be gobbled at any point of time. But this was not the case during its premature age. Kebabs were meat sprinkled with salt and barbecued to wipe the raw taste. This was utterly invented by the Mughal army as they desired to eat meat on the move while trying to invade and spread their reign. The kebabs not only provided them with the required protein to fight a war, but the ease of cooking reduced their time and effort to cook meat. However, the recipes have changed over the years and the Indian chefs have now tried to experiment with the kinds of delicacies that can be made with meat.
Traveling the timeline of Kebabs, Somerville now sees a bundle of Indian restaurants in the vicinity who have expertise in making Mughal cuisines with exotic spices and ravishing taste. As we speak about the Kebabs, it is important to know that the restaurant serves a wide range of kebabs which are available in either chicken or mutton. These kebabs are marinated with the spices and food herbs to add taste to the raw meat which is then barbecued or roasted to satiate your cravings for meat as an appetizer.

The kebab was, at the time, just meat sprinkled with salt, which was then barbecued and gobbled up by this army on the move. But soon it caught the fancy of Indian chefs. And by their very capable hands, the kebab was perfected into a sublime art.They choose the finest meats, created an amazing array of marinades in which these meats were transformed into savory goodness. Cooking was now also improved.
Best Naan that I have ever had. Food was kick ass. 20-25 min walk from Porter or Davis square. Worth the walk. We even got extra rice for free ( didn't ask for it, they just gave it because they saw that we were low!). Rice does come with the curry. Go!Andrew Franklin

This was the best Indian food I've had this year. It's fresh and freshly made and it's December. Come without expectations for service and get the garlic naan. The food comes to you as it comes. It's your job to enjoy it.Smith
Excellent food and service. Very fresh and cooked to order--I have dined only for dinner so far. Best Indian food I have had in 30 years. Very generous portions. I plan to eat here regularly. The breads are superb. The vegetable biryani is filled with fresh vegetables and comes with delicious raita, yogurt. Can't wait to return this coming week. Bravo!!Belly
