From a long legacy & history of street food, the "KATI ROLL" originated in Kolkata, India. As one of the most popular street foods in Kolkata in the 1930's, meats and/or vegetables from skewers filled finely kneaded flatbread to make, what we know today, as the KATI ROLL.
The KATI ROLL became popular to British royalty as well as locals alike, and each person experienced the unique taste of meats and/or vegetables rolled in a layered flatbread bursting with flavor.
At this point, there was no separation of titles or riches. Rather, the KATI ROLL bridged an entire state together and brought forth the gastronomy of street food by becoming the staple of fast food.
