I made these Corn-Paneer frankies for breakfast and they were just awesome. Here's the recipe:

  • 6 Fresh Chapatis (you can also use leftover chapatis )
  • 1 cup Sweet Corn kernels (steamed)
  • 1 cup finely chopped Capsicum
  • 1 Small Potato (boiled and mashed)
  • 1 cup cubed Paneer
  • 1 spoon Ginger-Garlic paste
  • 1 medium onion(thinly sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • 1 spoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Chilli Sauce
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Chaat Masala
  • Salt to taste
Preparation Time: 20 mins.

Serves: 4

Method: (Stuffing)
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add ginger-garlic paste and cumin seeds. Fry for 2 mins.
  • Add turmeric powder , mashed potato,steamed corn kernels, chopped capsicum , paneer cubes and saute till capsicum turns a bit tender.
  • Add salt and keep it aside.
How to Proceed?
  • Heat a griddle and put a drop of oil and place one chapati . Heat it for few seconds from both sides.
  • Put the chapati on a chopping board.Spread one spoon of Chilli sauce .
  • Now place one portion of stuffing in the centre of chapati in a row .
  • Put chopped onions and some tomato sauce on the stuffing.
  • Sprinkle some chat masala and roll it tightly like a wrap. 
  • Wrap a tissue paper or foil around each Franky and serve immediately.
  • Repeat the steps with the remaining chapatis.

For the spread , you can also use:
  • Green Chutney
  • Tamarind Chutney
  • Mango Chutney or even Achar Masala for the typical Indian taste :-))
If you are making a frankie with egg or chicken filling , try to use chapatis made up of wheat flour and maida in equal proportion. This gives a different taste to the frankie and doesn't turn soggy immediately. For the stuffing , you can also experiment with mix veggies, cheese slices , aloo patties ,sprouts to name a few.
So try these lip-smacking frankies today ! HAPPY COOKING !
