this frankie recipe is easy. the wraps are made from whole wheat flour or atta. the aloo tikkis, are easy to assemble and pan fry. for the sauce, i have made yogurt raita. this raita is sweet and saves your time to make a sweet tamarind chutney. the sweetness of the raita goes very well the spiced potato tikkis. have also added some grated carrots and thinly sliced onions and they give a nice crunch in the frankie. the recipe is good for kids who love frankies or wraps.

few more frankie recipes on blog are:

i remember having frankies when we would go for shopping in linking road, bandra, mumbai. there was a small joint there which served frankies. this was the only place where we would have frankies.

frankies are not the norm in our home, but a few family members are fond of them. usually we just prefer to have our rotis with sabzis. we never wrap the sabzi/dry veggie curry in rotis and then have it. but i know some folks who eat this way. they also add some extra toppings like mayonnaise, sliced raw tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce and sometimes even pickles, making a fusion frankie or wrap.

where we live now, there are a number of joints that specialize in wraps and frankies. they have whole wheat wraps too with various fillings. i have tried a few and i felt they were good. a nice meal if you are hungry and do not have time to cook.

the method of making a frankie or a wrap can be compared to an empty canvas. be creative when making the stuffing and sauces. the frankie stuffing can range from mix vegetables to potatoes to paneer and even beans like rajma (kidney beans) or chana (chickpeas).

the sauces for frankie can be mayonnaise, green chutneys or sweet chutneys or even tomato sauce or chutney. also there are plenty of variations in the veggies that can be added, from shredded cabbage to grated beetroot to radish to cucumber and even lettuce.

  • 2 to 3 pinches of salt for the onions

HOW TO MAKE frankie recipe

making aloo tikki for frankie recipe

  • steam potatoes in a steamer, electric cooker or pressure cooker. the potatoes have to be completely cooked.
  • when the potatoes are still warm or cooled down, peel and grate them in a bowl.
  • add kashmiri red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, dry ginger powder or minced ginger, corn starch, chaat masala and salt. instead of corn starch, you can also add bread pulp (soaked and squeezed bread slices), rice flour or arrowroot flour. a point to remember is that when you add corn starch, the potato has to be cooled down completely. otherwise the mixture becomes sticky, if corn starch is added to hot or warm potatoes.
  • mix everything well.
  • divide the mixture into small or medium shaped patties. you can apply some oil on your palms when making the patties or tikkis.
  • heat 2 tbsp oil till its medium hot in a tava or a shallow frying pan. gently place the aloo tikkis and pan fry them.
  • when one side of tikki becomes golden and crisp, turn over and fry the other side of tikki.
  • gently flip for a couple of times till the aloo tikkis are golden and crisp evenly.
  • once done, then drain the aloo tikkis on paper towels to remove excess oil. pan fry all the tikkis this way and keep aside.

making rotis for frankie recipe

  • when the potatoes are cooking, knead 1 cup of whole wheat flour with oil, salt and water to a smooth dough. cover and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • take medium sized balls from the dough and roll to a thin chapati on a lightly dusted rolling board.
  • place a a tava/griddle inverted on the stove top. its easier to lift thin rotis on an inverted tava. you can also cook the rotis the way you cook them regularly on a tava.
  • gently place the rolled thin chapati on the hot tava. when you see small blisters and bubbles appearing, flip and cook the other side. you can flip a couple of times, till the roti is cooked well. however, don't over do since the rotis are thin and they be will become crisp like papads, if you do extra roasting.
  • apply some oil if you want. make rotis this way and stack them up in a roti basket. cover and keep aside.

making stuffing and raita

  • in another bowl, add some salt to sliced onions. mix and keep covered for 15 to 20 minutes. mixing salt reduces the pungency of the onions.
  • prep by grating carrots and keep aside.
  • whisk or beat the curd/yogurt till smooth. add roasted cumin powder, red chili powder, chaat masala, salt & sugar, coriander leaves in the whisked curd. mix well and refrigerate.

making frankie recipe

  • in a plate, place one roti. place two tikkis in the center of the roti.
  • top the tikkis with the grated carrots and sliced onions.
  • pour the sweet yogurt raita.
  • sprinkle some chaat masala on top.
  • bring together both the sides of the roti and secure with a tooth pick. prepare all veg frankies this way.
  • serve frankie immediately with the remaining yogurt raita.

RECIPE TIPS

  • you can add your choice of chutneys or sauces.

  5. Small doubt…… What is the time limit to serve it?
    Hot only or can we have it after 4 to 5 hours??

    • best is to serve hot or warm. if planning to have after 4 to 5 hours, then just shape the tikki and keep in the fridge. after 4 to 5 hours, remove and let the tikki come to room temperature and then fry it. then assemble and serve. the rotis you can prepare before and while serving, just warm them lightly on a hot tawa.

  13. Hi Dassana,

    I love your website and the way you visually present the recipes. I just wanted to know whether there is an alternative to this yoghurt raita in this recipe as I am not fond of sweet yoghurt as a topping.

    Would also request you to post some tasty diet recipes 

    Thanks & Regards

    • you can add green chutney and sweet tamarind chutney to the frankie. aloo tikkis accompany very well with green coriander chutney and sweet tamarind chutney.

  14. Hi dasanna.i like all ur recipies.im beginer.im just following ur site for recipies as im newly married.
    Will this recipe be good without raita? Becoz I dont like curd

    • some sauce or dip should be there. otherwise the frankies would be dry. suggest to add tamarind chutney and coriander chutney instead of curd.

  15. Dear Dasanna and Amit
    I love your recipes.
    I have tried recipes from several blogs and many times they do not come out good.
