Refreshing History of Frankie :
Frankie is also called Wraps in some part of the world. Mexicans & Greeks have been eating wraps since 1900s. Mexican calls it Tacos. The term “Tacos” is believed to have evolved from the word Tacos which was used by Mexican Miners for gun powder wrapped in a paper. Another thought believes that Taco is derived fron Nahuati word Tlahco meaning “Half or “In the middle”
However, In West Bengal Nizam Restaurant started serving wraps in the name of Kati Roll also called Kathi Roll in 1932. Now a day, any filling enfolded in Roti is called Kati Roll, however, it first started with Roasted Kebab wrapped in a Paratha. In Bengali the word Kati means “Stick”. However, it is widely known as ROLL.
The story also goes that hurried office commuters wanted something quick and portable to eat, whereas some are of the opinion that Babus of British Raj were reluctant to touch the kebab and therefore, cooks at Nizam decided to roll kebabs. One another story runs is that there used to be huge rush during a lunch time at Nizam’s and the restaurant often ran out of plates. So that restaurant’s innovative management decided to serve the traditional paratha rolled and stuffed with Kebab to overcome the lack of plates. Thus the kati roll was born. Since then Kati Roll or Frankie has become a signature dish of West Bengal. In west Bengal, shops serving Kati roll are mostly known as “Roll-er-dokaan”.
