Traditionally frankie recipes were known as kathi kebab which was typically prepared in layered parathas. However, these days many variations of Frankie’s recipes have evolved, especially after being introduced as street food. Veg Frankie is one such hugely popular street food in India.

I have already shared the Paneer Frankie recipe in which I have added grated paneer with other veggies. Also, I used leftover chapati for the paneer kathi roll. However, in this recipe, I have shown how to make a purpose-based bread which makes it fresh and also convenient. You may use store-bought roti wrap made using maida or all-purpose flour. This is certainly an easy option, but may not be necessarily a healthy option. On a long day or busy day, I may be inclined to use store-bought wrap, but certainly inclined to make it freshly. Do try this way and I am certain that you would love this recipe for any meal of the day.

In addition, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect Veg Frankie Recipe or kathi roll recipe. Firstly, if the boiled and mashed potatoes contain more moisture, then add breadcrumbs to absorb it. Add breadcrumbs only if you cannot shape the sautéed vegetables into a cylindrical shape. Secondly, In this recipe, I have shown how to make the roti wrap particularly for this recipe. But leftover chapati, roti, and even paratha can also be used with the same texture and taste. Lastly, if you prefer a spicy veg frankie then spread Schezwan sauce with tomato sauce on top of roti/wraps/paratha’s. Avoid it if you are serving it for kids.

  1. I love frankie rolls! Will definitely give your recipe a try!
    I had a query!
    Will this frankie stay ok if i pack it for lunch for myself .. i wud want to prepare it in morning and eat aroung 4-5 hours later in lunch at work?what do you suggest??

    • it may turn soggy. I would recommend to pack the stuffing and veggies + wrap separately and then assemble it during your lunch time. assembling would take hardly few minutes.
