In addition to the delicately spiced rice dish from which it takes its name, midtown Halal cart Biryani Cart (which, yes, we love quite a bit) offers up several very respectable kati rolls: addictive wraps of meats, vegetables, and eggs stuffed inside buttery griddled paratha, a stretchy, whole wheat flatbread. We tried the strangely titled P.W.C.D. Roll ($3), a vegetarian option stuffed with scrambled eggs and a mound of creamy, perfectly cooked cubed potatoes. It gets topped off with a cooling yogurt sauce for tang and creaminess. Midtown Manhattan might sometimes seem like a culinary wasteland, but this kati roll is an oasis of deliciousness.
