Nawabi Kalmi Kabab

Nawabi Kalmi Kabab

On our recent trip to India, we picked up a number of recipe books. We had a lovely summer evening and decided that it was time to fire up the grill and try out a new kabab recipe. This week we tried the "Nawabi Kalmi Kabab". Kalmi Kababs are very popular in India and you will find them on most North Indian restaurant menus. Kalmi kababs  are typically made with chicken drumsticks, but this recipe recommended chicken thighs. Maybe the nawabs did not like drumsticks. 

We prepared the recipe using the ingredients mentioned and followed the 2 step marination process, but we grilled it on a regular gas grill. The kababs turned out really great. The kababs were very soft and succulent, probably due to the heavy use of cream and cheese. They were also spicy and tangy but not very hot. You can increase the heat by adding more chilly powder. 

We had the kababs with a simple rice pulao. We would recommend that you try the Nawabi Kalmi Kabab

Indian Soup Recipes


Indian Soup Recipes To me, there is  probably no better way to start a meal than with a nice bowl of hot soup. A lot of the Indian meals begin with a nice  hot bowl of soup that warms both the palate and the rest of the taste buds with the spices. From the Rasams in the South, to the Shorbas of the North, to the British influence Mullinatawny Soup, you can find a good number of soup recipes in our soup recipe section. We hope you enjoy this part of our Recipe collection.
