This veg frankie recipe is one of the most loved Indian street food! Whole wheat roti or chapati is layered with spiced mashed potato rolls, green chutney, chopped onions, pickled green chilies, and frankie masala.
I’m a big lover of Frankie and Frankie doesn’t taste good with a frankie masala .so here is the homemade frankie masala recipe.
- Paneer. – 1 cup
- Onion 🧅 – 1/2 thinly sliced
- Carrot 🥕 – 1 julienned
- Cabbage 🥬 – 1/2 julienned
- Mint chutney. – 3 tbsp
- Frankie masala. -2 tbsp
- Ginger – 1 tsp
- Garlic 🧄 – 1 tsp
- Curd – 2 tbsp
- Wheat flour. – 4 handful
- Salt. – 1 tsp
- Water. – 1/4 cup
- Oil. – 1 tsp
In a bowl add in the wheat flour and add up the salt and mix them together once it done add in some salt and mix and combine them well. Now add water 1/4 cup kneed them until soft and smooth kneed them at least for 5 minutes. If water isn’t enough add little by little. Kneed them until it’s really soft.
From the whole chappathi ball that has been kneed take a small size ball shaped and roll them thin and round if it’s getting to sticky then dust them with wheat flour and roll it perfectly.
Now in a pan turn the flame on and put the chapathi when the air bubbles start to appear on the top of the chappathi flip them to the other side wait till the other side has got the brown spots put them now to the flame directly and it blow up like poori. And the chappathi is done ✅.
Now marinate the paneer with frankie masala curd and ginger garlic paste and leave them to rest for 20 minutes to the least.Now in pan brush some oil and toast the marinated paneer on both sides. It leaves some water . Fry them only for few minutes. Frying it in high flame for long time makes it harder. Stick to the time for 4 to 5 minutes.
Now in a plate take either Aluminum foil or baking paper. Place the chapathi over it covering 1/4th if the chappathi as well the paper. Now apply mint chutney all over the chappathi and add in the vegetables then top some paneer and sprinkle frankie masala all over the chappathi roll the along the paper or foil and fold the bottom.
Step 7 :
Serve them hot with mint chutney or tomato sauce.
- You can use maida flour instead of wheat flour for a softer chappathi.
- Make sure the paneer is soft and add extra salt if needed while toasting them.
- Cutting the vegetables thin and julienned makes the Frankie better.
