The Kati Roll Company (TKRC) founder Payal Saha desperately missed kati rolls - street food from her hometown of Calcutta - when she moved to New York City with her husband, and thought that is if she missed them, others must too. Hence, Saha opened her first TKRC in New York City's eclectic Greenwich Village in 2002 with a simple menu consisting of authentic flavored kati rolls made with hand-ground spices, homemade parathas and freshly grilled fillings. Today with 3 locations in Manhattan and one in London, TKRC's menu consists of 13 varieties of kati rolls filled with the highest quality of lamb, beef, chicken, seafood, paneer, egg and grilled vegetables. All rolls are available in a choice of fresh flatbreads made daily - the original paratha or the lighter alternative of whole wheat roti. Today the eatery also offers organic salads with Indian-inspired dressings and organic Lassi yogurt drinks. Saha's TKRC is credited with introducing kati rolls to the US market and enjoys a large, loyal following amongst patrons and press.
