The tandoor had always been used to make chewy rotis, when Kundan Lal Gujral thought of using it to bake chicken, marinated in lime, yoghurt and spices. Legend goes that, that is how tandoori chicken, with its crisp skin and tangy meat, came to be, from one of Moti Mahal’s owners. Monish Gujral is Kundan Lal’s grandson and at the helm of one of the country’s oldest tandoori/Mughlai cuisine chains, established in 1947. Their enviable client list includes former Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev, Shah of Iran, Kennedys and Jawaharlal Nehru. From 2010, the chain went overseas, even to UAE, Saudi Arabia, Muscat, Tanzania and New Zealand, among others. Next is China, informs the 54-year-old Gujral.
