From the Test Kitchen

India has a rich tradition of easy-to-make, delicious street food. Each of its states boasts its own tasty specialty. In Kolkata—considered one of the country’s culinary hubs—it’s the kati roll. Though the roll originally consisted of ingredients cooked on a skewer (or “kati”) and wrapped up in a traditional, soft flatbread (“roti”), it now encompasses many flavorful fillings cooked in any number of ways. We’re making ours with sautéed vegetables and paneer, a mild cheese with an incredible texture.
