Indrajit, you are absolutely right. They say Nizam is found in Australia too. A delicasy of Nizam's rolls are the ones where the Parathas are filled with Khiri Kabab (udder of a cow).

I do not at all agree with Indrajit and Ranjan. Yes the word "NIZAM" is connected with every meaty --- Goat, Checken, Fish and what not but it has some of the most delicious and mouth watering dishesin the world. I have made Kathi Rolls filled with Potatoes, Arbi, Lotous sticks mash, Kababs made from Soya powder and allmost every vegetable grown on this planet earth. They are better than the NON VEG ONES. Try them.

The process is the same given by "NIZAM", I have to thank him for the Recipe without which my expriments may not have taken place.

Nizam's rolls are from the restaurant Nizam's near New Market in Kolkata. These guys pioneered the "kathi roll" as we know it today - by simply placing the cooked meat in a parantha and making it "fast food". I have never eaten a potato or lentil kathi roll there but their beef, mutton and chicken rolls are legendary. They have gone corporate now so I guess all things and combos are possible but many ppl, myself included, would not be caught dead eating a "veggie" roll there.

I grew up in Calcutta and after finished watching a movie in the Elite or Minerva Cinema I went to Nizams for a Karhi Roll, it was delicious and filling as a kid I could not eat more than one roll.
Now being in Israel I want to make the Parathas the way it was made there. Would someone let me know how to make it at home?

Does any one know the precise recipe of Nizam's Kati meat masala and measurement so that the tradition will live on . I know certain Anglo Indians have it but do not wish to share it. Surely somebody shared it with them.
