    300 Per Wrap

Kati rolls are one of the most popular street foods in India. They may originate in Kolkatta, but you can find them on street corners across India and even all over the world now.

 

These wraps usually consist of morsels of barbecued meat, cheese, or vegetables rolled up in Indian flatbread such as a roti or parata.

 

In our version, a spicy scramble of paneer and vegetables and a tangy chutney are all wrapped up in a thin flaky roti. Enjoy them dining in or as a quick meal on the go!
