NIZAM’S KATHI ROLLS, NEW DELHI, INDIA
 

 

The name Nizam’s is almost synonymous with kathi rolls in India. They were one of the first ones to popularize this food that has its historic origins in cuisine from the princely states of North Eastern India.

A kathi roll is a very popular fast food in India. The meats used in these rolls are traditionally cooked in a charcoal pit using wooden skewers, which are called “Kathi’s”; hence the name Kathi Kababs or Kathi rolls.

Chandini Chowk is truly India, as it should be experienced. I love every bit of it from the overfilled narrow streets that is equally shared by cars, people, animals, scooters, bicycles and so much more to the small stalls and street peddlers, selling everything from dinky little plastic toys, to mouthwatering food delights.

On one of these little streets is Karim’s, one of the best-known food spots in Chandini Chowk. Karim’s is run by the descendants of the royal chefs who prepared delicacies for the Imperial Kitchens of the Mughal Dynasty who ruled India in the 1700’s. Their recipes have been handed down for generations. Read the rest of this entry
