Kids love frankies! My son loves them so much that he can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinners. I don’t crib because I can get to put all the healthy fillings in the frankies and he eats them without a complaint! Here are some options that you can tray at home too!
Make the rotis and parathas in advance for the frankies
- 2 large sized potatoes
- 1 medium sized carrot
- ½ cup of cauliflower florets
- ½ cup of green beans
- 1 medium sized onion
- Salt to taste
- Oil to shallow fry
Cook the vegetables in a pressure cooker with salt. Chop the onion finely. Shallow fry the chopped onions until golden brown. Drain the water from the cooked vegetables and add them to the onions and sauté them. You can use additional flavoring like dania, cumin and chilly powder. Let it sauté for 10 minutes in slow flame. Allow the vegetable filling to cool. Layer the vegetable mix in a roti and roll it to make a frankie. Wrap the frankie in tissue paper and place it in the tuck box. You can also cut the frankie into bit sized pieces resembling spring rolls.
You can also make an omelet with two eggs. Add in onions, grated cheese and pepper powder to enhance the taste. Place the omelet in a roti and roll it into a frankie. Here too you can choose to cut the frankie into small bite sized pieces. Wait for the omelet to cool before rolling it to make the frankie. ‘Sweating’ could make the frankie soggy and uneatable.
