Veg franki Vegetable Frankie Recipe

by Nayana

Spell it as franki, Frankie or frankey, this vegetable frankie recipe is a yummy and is a favorite of kids as well as grown ups.

My teenage daughter is not much interested when I offer her chapati and subji(vegetable side dish). But she is very enthusiastic when I mention veg Frankie.

She is willing to eat frankie at breakfast, lunch and dinner. And I am not complaining as long as she is eating vegetables.

Frankie is wrap filled with spicy vegetable mix. The wrap is made with atta(whole wheat flour) and stuffed with a variety of vegetables and then cooked on a fry pan. The flavors are sooo inviting.

A spicy chutney or tomato ketchup adds to the taste. You can serve it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. It is good as a picnic food.

veg frankie

Veg franki is quite convenient to make too. You can use tortillas or chapaties or phulkas. Once you make the chapaties or trotillas and vegetable mix ready, you can assemble a Frankie very quickly.

It is a good dish to take to office or school for lunch. For dinner you may serve it along with your favorite soup, may be tomato soup or a sweet corn soup or onion soup. It is a hassle free menu.

vegetable stuffing for veg frankie

For vegetable stuffing - the vegetables you can use are the ones that your family would eat ie potatoes, onions, cauliflower, cabbage, peas, carrots,beans, sweet corn, tomatoes,yellow, green or red capsicums etc.

You may add a few varieties of cooked lentils (dals such as moong dal, chana dal, toovar dal, peagion peas or black eyed beans etc.) or some paneer (cottage cheese) too if you wish. You may use leftover chapaties too as long as they are soft.

How to make Frankie.

Ingredients for the Frankie wrap

  • Atta - whole wheat flour - 2 cups

  • Salt - 1/2 tsp

  • Vegetable oil - 1 tsp

  • Water - to make dough.

  • For the vegetable subji stuffing, I usually use potatoes, onion, peas, beans and carrots. Sometimes I add paneer too. Today I am using

    Ingredients for the vegetable stuffing for Frankie

  • Potatoes - 1 cup cubed small

  • Green Capsicum - 1/2 cup chopped

  • Onion - 1/2 cup chopped

  • Tomato - 1/2 cup chopped

  • Green chilies - 2 (more or less according to taste)

  • Garam masala - 1/2 tsp

  • Garlic ginger paste(or chopped finely) - 1/2 tsp

  • Salt - 1/2 tsp

  • Butter
    or vegetable oil - 1 tbsp
  • Preparation for Frankie

    1. mix atta, salt and oil

    2. Add water as necessary and make soft dough as you do for chapati.

    3. Keep aside covered for about 20-30 minutes.

    4. Make chapaties with the dough as you normally make. There is no need to fold and apply oil in between.

    Making vegetable stuffing for Frankie

    1. In a deep pan, heat oil or butter. Add cumin seeds. When they stop spluttering, add chopped onions and finely chopped green chilies.

    2. Fry for 2- minutes. Add garlic and ginger paste. Keep stirring.

    3. Add chopped tomatoes. Stir and cook covered for 2 minutes.

    4. Add potatoes. Cook covered for 3-4 minutes. Add capsicum. Cook for 2 minutes without covering.

    5. Add salt, sugar, garam masala and chopped coriander leaves. If adding paneer, add it now. Mix well and cook till the vegetable mix is dryish.

    6. Take off the fire. Let cool.
    This vegetable mix needs to be dry. So no water is to be added at any stage. After you add capsicum, do not cover. Let it cook with the pan uncovered.

    How to assemble vegetable Frankie

    1. Take one chapatti or tortilla. Spread a little tomato ketchup on it.

    2. Place 2 tbsp vegetable mix in the middle of the chapatti lengthwise. Fold one side of the chapatti to cover the vegetable mix and then the other side over it. In this way fill 2 or 3 chapaties with veg mix.
    3. Heat tava. Keep heat medium. Add a little oil or butter or ghee on the tava. Place 2-3 stuffed frankies on it, open side downwards.

    4. Apply a little butter or ghee or oil on top. Let it cook for a few seconds. Turn over carefully. Let cook till it gets a few brown spots at the bottom.

    Tips for making vegetable franky

    1. If you like a crisp frankie, Keep heat low once the tava is hot and cook the Frankie for a longer time.

    2. Depending on the size of your tava(girdle, skillet) you may shallow fry 2-3 or more frankies at a time.

    3. You may use tomato ketchup as given in this recipe to spread before adding vegetable mix or you may use your favorite chutney or mayonnaise.
      The chutney should not be watery. You may use pudina - mint chutney,coconut chutney, tomato chutney, green tomato chutney etc. Each chutney will add it's own flavor and taste to the frankie. So try out making frankie with different chutnies.

    should we add garam masala or not?!

    Reply by Nayana

    Hi Anonymous, (wish you had given your name)

    Yes, you should add garam masala. I see that I have listed garam masala but not written when it should be added. I am correcting the instructions now.

    Thanks for finding and letting me know the mistake.
    Have a great day!

    Instead of making a chapati like dough we can also make a dosa like batter for the same,that also taste great.and that's easy to make.

    Reply by admin : Yes, it would be like masala dosa when you make it into a batter. It is ok to do if you are going to eat it immediately.

    It is easy to make with a batter but it will get soggy and break up fast if you take it for lunch or picnic etc.

    by: vaishnavi

    your receipe is not so good there is nothing special in this receipe instead of using butter you can make it without butter

    Jan 17, 2012

    This is really yummy. If those big chappatis are cut into small pieces say 3 to 4 then it would be better for children snacks box. Bookmarked.
