Indian sandwiches -- midtown

Hurry & Tasty Curry is a new(ish) Indian place on 45th St near Lexington that recently replaced another Indian restaurant. While their steam table stuff doesn't seem so different from the stuff of the restaurant it replaced, they do have roll sandwiches similar to the ones at Kati Roll Company on MacDougal. It certainly isn't as tasty as Kati Roll's, however these sandwiches are pretty good and definitely something different for this neck of the woods. There are 5 choices of sandwiches: chicken roll (the ground meat chicken kabab in the tubular form), aloo roll (spiced potatoes), paneer roll (cheese), anda roll (egg), and chicken paneer roll. $3.99 per sandwich or $6.99 for two. While the menu describes it as naan sandwiches, these rolls are made with paratha bread. I tried the chicken paneer roll, and the chicken kabab isn't quite as aggressively spiced as I like. They have a salad and condiment bar where you can get the ubiquitous green sauce, tamarind sauce, and yogurt sauce, but strangely no red onion stuff, but most surprisingly, mango chutney. I loaded up on the mango chutney and some of the green sauce, which pepped up the sandwich a bit. All in all, this is a good addition to the lunch rotation around Grand Central.
