Potato Paneer Frankies / Wraps

potato paneer frankie7

Women love shopping! I'm no exception. During such super shopping spree sessions with friends, we have always preferred to munch on frankies for lunch or evening snack so that we dont run out of energy to roam around :P

Frankie stalls around the city have been our saviors during busy days. They are mess free, delicious and simple wraps that truly serves the purpose and easy to have them on the go.

I have made them at home a couple of times and this time wanted to make it a little more professional. Checked out around the web world and got inspirations from Tarladala's wraps, but tweaked them to my needs and tastes :)

Here comes my favorite Potato Paneer Frankies :)

Ingredients for Potato Paneer Tikki -

Potato - 3
Paneer (grated) - 1/2 cup
Green chillies - 2
Onion - 1
Ginger - 1/4 inch piece
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt - for taste
Corn flour - 1 tblsp
Oil - for roasting

Method for Potato Paneer Tikki -

Boil and mash potatoes. Chop onions, ginger and chillies finely.

Take two tsps of oil in a pan and saute onions until it turns transparent. Add the chillies and ginger and saute for a min. Drop in the mashed potatoes, grated paneer, salt, turmeric powder and garam masala, mix well and cook on medium flame for 3 to 4 mins, while stirring continuously.

Allow this mixture to come to room temperature and then sprinkle corn flour over it and mix well.

Now pinch out equal portions of the potato paneer mixture and make 2 inch oval shaped tikkis.

Roast them on both sides on a skillet by adding few drops of oil.

Potato Paneer Tikkis are ready.

Note: You can deep fry or shallow fry them instead of roasting.

If you taste the tikkis at this stage, you might have nothing left out to make the frankies :P

Chilly vinegar or Chilly lemon mixture:

Chop chilly finely and add it to 3 tsp of white vinegar or lemon juice and allow it to marinate for few hours.

Make the potato paneer tikkis in advance and keep it ready as well.

1. Place a roti on the work area and keep two oval potato tikkies in the center.
2. Sprinkle the onion masala mixture on top of the tikkis.
3. Pour a generous tsp of chilly lemon mixture on top of the tikkis.
4. Drizzle a tsp of masala water mixture on the tikkis as well.

Enjoy the tangy and yummy homemade frankies :)

Grate some cheese on top of the tikkis before rolling the frankie and microwave for just 30 seconds to have cheesy bite of frankie :)


Couldn't resist biting it :P

I reserved some of the yummy potato paneer filling for another dish. Wait to see what it is!! :)

I am happy to send this as an entry to "Let's Go Stuffed Series - LGSS" which is going on in Vatsala's blog - Show and tell. :)
