Moti Mahal Delux Restaurant

Moti Mahal’ Indian Restaurant was founded by Kundan Lal Gujral, Thakur Dass and Kundan Lal Jaggi, in Delhi in 1947, they worked at a small eatery called Moti Mahal, owned by a man named ‘Mokha Singh’ in Peshawar, British India, from 1920s to 1947. Moti Mahal was the first to dig up a tandoor right in the middle of the eatery and since then Peshawar was introduced to the culinary art of tandoori chicken by them. This was a success and soon there was in demand for Tandoori at social gatherings and wedding feasts where they would use an improvised tandoor.
