Patthar Ka Gosht is a Hyderabadi preparation that came into being in 1884. It was during Mahboob Ali Pasha’s reign when he was 18 years old. He was on tiger hunting in a jungle wanted to have kababs. During such expeditions his wardrobes, dining table & bed etc, etc used to be carried on elephants for his comfort. His order had to be obeyed so his Shahi Bawarchi managed to find a slab in their load and made a good use of it for the purpose. Mahboob Ali Khan the 6th Asaf Jahi liked it so much he decided to have it again on his return to Hyderabad, there they made a smooth slab & made even better kabab so called Patthar Ka Gosht.
