Street food is very popular all over the world and when it comes to India there are many dishes such as Chaat, Rolls, Indo Chinese, South Indian Dosa etc which are sold in every part of India and is enjoyed by the people. Today, we will talk about one of India’s favourite street snack, wraps or rolls.
Wraps and Rolls are everyone’s favourite! If we talk about street style rolls, they usually use parathas or rotis made of maida stuffed with delicious spicy fillings such as Potato Masala, Paneer Chilli Masala, Chicken Tikka Masala etc. They also add delicious sauce, spices and pickled onions to give it extra taste and flavour.
We all have heard about Kolkata’s famous Kathi Rolls which are sold on the streets of the city and is everyone’s favourite too.
