Shami Kabab Aur Qaliamba is a combination of the spicy Shami Kabab and the tangy Qaliamba. Mutton Shami Kabab is a much-loved snack from the Mughlai cuisine. Qaliamba is made with slcied raw mangoes and sugar. It is believed that Shami Kabab Aur Qaliamba was a favourite dish of the revered poet Mirza Ghalib.

The shallow fried kababs are topped with the sweet and tangy qaliamba. 

The melt-in-mouth, lip-smacking mutton kababs and the tangy qaliamba is a match made in heaven.
