The Kathi Roll Story
We would love to share the famous story behind the invention of Kathi Roll from the colonial era of Calcutta. The credit goes to Nizam’s who’s delicious Kebabs were immensely popular in Indian natives and British expats. It was the ultimate destination for all the non-vegetarian food lovers .However, the regular British customers & the daily on-going commuters found it somewhat messy and unhygienic to pick the greasy kebabs with their hands.
This has raised a concern within Nizam’s of losing out the hurried customer. So Nizam’s introduced a new way of presenting the wildly popular kabab with paratha by wrapping the kebabs in crispy parathas and further wrapping the kabab paratha roll in butter paper to make sure the upmost hygiene. People started loving this new presentation of famous Kabab’s within parathas and this had become an instant hit.
In 1964, Nizam’s replaced the heavy and costly iron sticks with bamboo sticks (known as ‘kathi’ in the local Bengali language, signifying ‘stick’) and that is how the well-known nizam’s Kabab Rolls get his famous name “Kathi Rolls”.
The kathi rolls basically an inspiring food innovation from the street food capital of India i.e. Kolkata. Today, These Rolls are famous and ubiquitous the world over. And yet, the Kolkata charm and whiff of nostalgia added with our fusion recipes makes our rolls a special hard-to-replicate flavor.
