Great for lunches, snacks, parties, picnics or road trips, Frankies are a going to be well loved by all and at any time of the day. This recipe was inspired by Deepika Agarwal and, honestly, we have to say that we had a lot of fun experimenting with it. This recipe is very versatile and definitely a keeper.

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Makes: 6 frankies

For Paratha:
All Purpose Flour / Maida – 1 cup
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Oil – 1 tbsp
Potato – 1 small, boiled, peeled and grated
Warm Water – 1 or 2 tbsp, as needed
Oil – enough to drizzle
All-Purpose Flour for dusting

Method (for Paratha)

1. In a bowl, mix the All-Purpose Flour and the Salt together.
2. Add in the OIl and rub it into the All-Purpose Flour to incorporate well.
3. Add in the Potatoes and again crumble in, same as the oil.
4. Add 1 tbsp of Warm Water at a time to form a stiff dough.
5. Knead for a 2 minutes, drizzle and coat the dough ball with Oil, cover and allow it to rest for 15 min.
6. After 15 min., knead once more, and divide the dough into 6 equal parts.
7. Heat a Tawa/Skillet on medium heat till it is nice and hot.
8. Take one part of the dough and roll onto a smooth ball and press between your palms to form a disc.
9. Dip the disc in some additional All-Purpose Flour and roll into a chapati.
10. Make the roti a little thinner than a chapati as the Maida tends to shrink.
11. Once rolled out, place on the hot Tawa.
12. Move the roti just a bit to avoid sticking to the tawa.
13. Allow the color to change just a bit and some bubbles to appear.
14. Flip the Roti once that happens and allow it to cook on the other side for just a couple of minutes.
15. Increase the flame to the highest and using tongs, place the Roti on the flame.
16. Allow it to balloon up.
17. Take off the flame and keep in an insulated container till ready to make the rolls.
