Frankie in a Fast- Are you serious?This is the reaction I get when I talk of Vrat Wali frankie.

Let’s go for it! This is the last recipe on the list and I surely want you guys to share with me how it worked for you.


For The Roti (Wrap)


  • Rajgira/Kuttu Atta: 1 cup (You can mix both in equal quantities totally your choice)
  • Oil /Ghee: 2 Tsp
  • Ginger-Chilli paste: 1 Tbsp
  • Boiled and mashed potatoes: ½ cup ( helps to bind the flour and make the rotis soft)
  • Dahi: 2 -3 Tsp
  • Coriander:finely chopped: Handful
  • Pepper: 1 Tsp
  • Salt (Sendha Namak): To Taste



  1. Mix all the ingredients and knead the flour into a dough. Use a little water to knead the dough. Keep it aside for about 30 minutes.
  2. Roll into rotis. It is going to be difficult to roll these. So roll on a plastic bag or butter paper.
  3. This helps to lift the roti. Put the roti on the tawa and Half cook on both sides.
  4. Keep it aside.


For The Patty


  • Boiled and mashed potatoes: 1 cup
  • Paneer( cottage cheese) grated: 1 ¼ cup
  • Ginger-Chilli paste: 1 Tbsp.
  • Coriander:finely chopped: Handful
  • Pepper: 1 Tsp
  • Roasted jeera powder:1 Tsp
  • Salt (Sendha Namak): to taste
  • Lime: ½
  • Arrowroot flour: ¼ cup



  1. Take a bowl and mix all the ingredients. (Keep ¼ cup grated paneer to garnish the frankie.)
  2. Add half the arrowroot flour and keep the other half. Mix well.
  3. Add the lime juice and mix well again.
  4. Roll into oblong patties. Take the arrow root powder on your palms to help you roll better.
  5. Once all patties are done, take a skillet or non stick pan and shallow fry the patties in oil or ghee. (I simply brush the nonstick pan with a little ghee and don’t use any oil or ghee later on)
  6. Flip and cook on both sides till golden brown and keep them aside.


To Assemble:

You will need the pre-cooked rotis, the patties, the green and sweet chutneys we made yesterday, paneer and coriander to garnish.

  1. Take the half cooked roti on the non stick pan. Apply the green and sweet chutney on it. If you wish, you can sprinkle a little aamchur on it.
  2. Place the patty in the center, sprinkle the grated paneer and coriander over it.
  3. Roll from both sides and cook on a slow flame.


Your Vrat Wali Frankie is ready!!!!
