The simplest roll on the menu, the Unda Roll has the distinction of being both breakfast and lunch rolled up into one easy, portable package. Great for when you’re traveling by cycle riksha or bullock cart. This roll is very popular in Calcutta.
Aloo Masala Roll
Author A A Milne once commented, “What I say is that, if a fellow really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.” We couldn’t agree more. The Aloo Masala roll is just that, spiced tender fried potatoes and not much else. Delicious and decent.
Take two good ideas and put them together to create one super good idea. The Unda Aloo roll is the vegetarian version of a “meat and potato” type dish. Filling and fulfilling, the roll is rumored to have been the alleged inspiration for The Snuggie®
Meet the Big Cheese of the TKRC menu. Paneer is a fresh, unaged, firm farmers cheese common to India. Its creamy flavor is enhanced with tangy Indian pickling spices (achar) and then barbecued to infuse the flavors. Laced with grilled green peppers and tomatoes, this roll is vegetarian and our second most popular roll.
Chickpeas cooked to spicy perfection is a mainstay in Northern Indian cuisine. The Channa masala roll is the portable version of this popular dish. Enhanced with the lime cilantro chutney and pickled onions, this roll was created in 2010 for our veg-friendly patrons.
Mixed Veggie Roll
Did you know that 1 in 10 American adults follow a vegetarian-inclined diet? TKRC added the Mixed Veggie Roll late in 2011, to expand our vegetarian repertoire. It’s a sweet, tangy and spicy veggie croquette made with super healthy beets, peanuts, raisins, carrots and potatoes. The Mixed Veggie roll adds a different flavor to our already famous rolls.
Hands down, the Chcken Tikka roll is TKRC”s most popular roll. Made with antibiotic and hormone free, halal chicken, the Chicken Tikka Roll is part of our original menu.
What came first, the chicken or the egg? In this classic roll, it doesn’t really matter as barbecued hormone and antibiotic-free, halal chicken is wrapped with griddled, beaten eggs. The result is a warm egg-plosion of texture and flavor in your mouth.
Our Beef Tikka roll satisfies your craving for beef with huge cubes of barbecued, halal top round accented with our signature lime cilantro chutney and pickled red onions.

Legend has it that the lamb-based Shami Kabab was created for a toothless Nawab of India by his highly skilled Moghul chef. Our halal, minced lamb kabab is blended with chickpeas and eggs and cooked to a crispy patty. This is a roll that is fit for a king … and revered amongst dentists city-wide.
The Unda Shami is another way to enjoy one of India’s favorite snack foods, the Shami Kabab. The kabab’s flavor is enhanced with a warm blanket of eggs. Consider it the perfect comfort food for your spicy palette.
Shrimp Masala Roll
Developed by celebrity Chef Angelo Sosa of Top Chef Masters fame, the shrimp masala roll is inspired by the coastal flavors of India. The roll features tender barbecued shrimp marinated in coconut, warm spices and tangy flavors. Chef Sosa comments, “I am a huge fan of The Kati Roll Company and the intensity of their spice blends inspired me to go bold, but sustain balance with the freshness of the coconut-marinated shrimp. It was a great experience to work on my own interpretation of this classic Indian street food.” The roll was introduced in 2011 and is currently only available in our New York City locations.
And the Rest…
TKRC signature rolls come wrapped in a flaky, buttery unleavened flatbread called a paratha. The paratha is made of a wheat flour dough rolled, layered and fried to a golden brown.
Order any kati roll with a roti and you have yourself a healthier option without losing any of the flavor. Our rotis are made of whole wheat flour and cooked on the grill without any oils.
Lime Cilantro Chutney and Pickled Onions
All of TKRC rolls are enhanced with our signature lime-cilantro chutney and pickled onions. We make the chutney fresh everyday squeezing the limes and chopping the cilantro by hand.
TKRC Spice Blends
All of our fillings are marinated in our proprietary spice blends consisting of all-organic spices imported from India. We grind them locally ensuring the freshest flavors and aromas.
