Chicken Kathi Roll is a lip-smacking Indian street food. This yummy portable snack was invented by “Nizam’s”, a popular restaurant in Kolkata in the first half of the 20th century. They made these rolls for their customers who wanted a filling on-the-go snack. Since then, this street food has gained immense popularity around the globe. 

Juicy, tender, roasted kebab fillings delicately wrapped in flaky, layered parathas, the kathi roll is one of the heartiest and most satisfying of street foods. 

The delightful Chicken Kathi Roll is packed with finger-licking flavours and freshness in every bite.
