A Recursive lookup refers to routes for which the router must look up the connected route to a next-hop gateway in order to route the packet to its ultimate destination.
 

The Router uses Routes to 

a) find the next router in the route path and 

b) to Route to the next Router


This is because in a routing table the gateway for a routed network can be defined as an interface or as an IP address.
