kathi roll - calcutta to sydney
The Kathi Roll has made an enormous journey from the shores of India to a worldwide food sensation. The Roll available with or without eggs - with fillings such as Chicken or Paneer or just the bare egg by itself dominate the street food scene in Kolkata, the City of Joy.
The team at Calcutta Kathi Rolls is bringing this food sensation to the people of Sydney. After operating various market stalls, we have the red and black Calcutta Kathi Roll food truck which will traverse parts of Sydney and beyond to bring this food closer than making a trip almost 9,000 kilometres away.
We are as authentic as it can get - making the filling in kathi (skewers) and the all-important Paratha cooked fresh in front of you as you wait to be served. The flakey texture of the paratha with the flavoursome filling of Chicken or Paneer (v) garnished with lemon juice, chilli, onions and spices create a melody that is irresistible and will make you crave for more.
Legend says that a Kathi Roll is not a Kathi Roll unless it is had on the streetside - like you get in the footpaths of Kolkata amidst the cacophony of people, cars and traffic and the noise of the spatula hitting the tawa on which the paratha is cooked - creating an ambience that is truly divine. Although the noise is hardly comparable here, we intend to create the ambience and the noise with the food doing the talking.
Kolkata's crumbed fish fry is the citysiders' favourite afternoon snack - and where else can you find it in our shores? We miss it so much that we decided to bring the crumbed fish fry. We have tried to make it as authentic Kolkata expereince as possible - serving the fry with "Kasundi" mustard. The fillets are marinated with our signature spices and then crumbed and fried fresh in front of you. No wonder this is a delight to eat !
One of our iconic menu item is the lamb biryani. Kolkata food scene is not complete without havimg a serve of the mouthwatering biryani - modified to suit the palate of Calcuttans. Its the dum style biryani - but the "aloo" or the potato must be there ! The Kolkata style biryani creates magic in your mouth with melting fillings of lamb and recreates the flavours that we miss from iconic Kolkata restaurants around Park Circus.
Our latest addition to our menu is another Kolkata favourite - the Mutton Roll. Tender lamb meat is cooked in aromatic spices which is wrapped inside the egg lined parathas to create a wonderful taste sensation that will bring you memories of Kolkata.
