    Quick stop at Bismillah this evening for the roll (Shan was out of Brain Masala). The rolls were enjoyable and satisfying. Not quite the Calcutta roll as publicblast mentions, but still a good ‘sandwich’(?). They list three rolls – paratha kabab, chicken boti and frontier chicken. We tried the first two, specifying paratha for the chicken boti (just in case). The fried parathas were soft and flavorful and the kabab (a sheek kabab – handformed skinless sausage if you will) was tasty. Rolled up in the paratha with some iceberg lettuce pieces (a bit of which I jettisoned) and onion it was good. The chicken boti ‘wrap’ was even better. We also got the somewhat standard thin yogurt cilantro mint sauce. Especially nice was the hot sauce – a tangy cilantro chile sauce. Not a bad deal at all at $3.99.
