Veggie Frankie's

I and my hubby love to eat something quick and spicy for dinner on those lazy winter days and I find this recipe just doing that. It's super quick even though the recipe calls for multiple steps. If you have most of the stuff handy (like chutney, tortilla, left over dry curry) then its even more quicker.  This recipe is very close to the bombay frankie.


1. 1 packet of whole wheat tortillas (My sister makes thin roti's of maida (all purpose) flour) Or use any other flavoured tortillas.
2. One Onion
3. Mixed peppers (yellow, green, red, orange) or use which ever handy.
4. 3 potatoes boiled
5. 1/2 teaspoon black salt
6. 1/2 cumin seeds
7. 1/2 garam masala
8. 1/2 amchur powder
9. 2-3 green chilli minced
10. Salt to taste
11. 3-4 teaspoon Oil
12. Cheese ( I prefer mixed mozzarella and jack cheese). Any cheese will do
13. Coriander for garnish
14.  Chaat masala
15. 4-5 tbsp of green chutney

How I Prepare

1. Cut onions into thin slices. In a pan add little oil. After the oil is hot enough, add onions and caramelize them until golden brown. Keep stirring so that onions don't get burnt. 

2. Mash boiled  potatoes in a bowl, add black salt, amchur powder, regular salt as per taste, 1/4 tsp garam masala and mix it nicely.

3. Divide the above mix into small size portion and roll it in a hot dog shape. In a pan add little oil and roast the potato mix on both sides until golden brown. See the picture below.

4. Cut green pepper into long slices. In a pan add little oil, once oil is hot add cumin seeds, saute for 1-2 minutes. Add green chilli, sliced pepper, salt  and left  out garam masala. Saute for 3-4 minutes on medium-high flame. We want the pepper to be crunchy.

5. Now we start the frankie assembling.  Heat the tawa on a stove top. Warm the tortilla lightly on both sides. Take the tortilla out place it on a plate and spread green chutney on it. Place caramelized onions, potato and some sauteed green pepper. Sprinkle on top as much cheese you like. Also sprinkle some chaat masala and roll the tortilla and place it on tawa.  Apply some oil on top and let it cook for 1-2 minutes.

6. Cut it into 2 piece before serving. Serve it hot with green chutney and tomato ketchup. Yum Yum !!

This recipe is great option for kids lunch box, you can change the ingredients as per your kids taste.
