Don't you love compact meals all packed in one yummy roll. I am a huge fan of shwermas, falafel, kathi rolls, rolli-polis in a paratha and of course
THE FRANKIE: A Bombay invention, anyone who grew up in Bombay would have at some point eaten a Tibb's Frankie. It's simple, fast and easy to carry street food and frankly speaking I love the simplicity of everything wrapped in one meal.
So here it is:
For the Wrap:
1 cup regular flour
1 cup wheat flour
1 tbsp oil
water to knead
1 tspn salt
For the filling:
1 Sliced onions
5-6 cloves garlic minced
handful of ginger minced
3-4 green chillies sliced lengthwise
1 green bell pepper thinly sliced
1 box of mushrooms (approx 10 numbers)
1 corn off the cob
sliced chicken kababs. I used Yummiez by Godrej. You can order or make them at home
1 egg per frankie roll
1 dash of milk
Mixed masala according to taste (I always use Papa's Magic Masala)
1. Mix the ingredients for the wrap and prepare the dough. Cover with a damp cloth and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Roll into chapattis or rotis and on a low heat cook the rotis on the tawa or flat pan till small bumps of air show on the surface.
3. Store in a dry place.
Squeeze a dash of lemon and roll and eat. This is such a good rainy day meal. It takes care of all the deep fried cravings and it is really healthy. There can be so many variations to this dish. Add spinach, add cream in the corn, add potatoes instead of chicken. Will be also great with sausages, salami, bacon. Its unending. Various kinds of cheese, herbs. Just the basics can be the same and so much fun can be had with this meal.
This was a fulfilling meal and flowed well together and all the ingredients rolled into one so well that I felt it accompanied this piece of music perfectly. I discovered this rendition of Adele's famous Rolling in the Deep last week on the internet. I am becoming a big fan of these Piano guys. Do hear this piece, it is beautiful.
