Be creative while making stuffing . Here , I have shared very easy and most favourite stuffing recipe. Adding some marinated and roasted Paneer is also a good option …

For important Notes …

  • Add some bread crumbs, in stuffing if it has more moisture.
  • Make filling little more spicy to make Frankie tongue tickling and more delicious.
  • Only wheat flour can be used to make wrap.
  • Always cook wraps very lightly, only till light brown spots. Crispy or over cooked wraps will not give perfect soft texture.
  • Stuffing can be anything as per your creativity.
  • For a quick version, use leftover Chapati / Roti and dry vegetable. Apply some chutney and some salad. Wrap is ready. Take my words , it’s actually very tasty and very filling .

  1. Yummilicious Veg Frankie. I remember when it was such a popular dish in India that for all the fetes held in Mombasa, there would be a veg Frankie stall. I read on some stalls in Mumbai recently that veg Frankie was invented in Mumbai… however, where it originates from doesn’t matter, as long as we can still enjoy this delicious street food.

  2. Veg Frankie is making me drool as my children always prefer the chicken filling for kathi rolls.
    I love potato tikki stuffed kathi rolls any day. Loved your step by step instructions and detailed recipe.
