Frankies (yeaaahhh)

Frankie (fast Chicken rolls)

I will be posting a few things I made in the past couple of days. These are inspired by vahchef.
He is an amazing chef and I love making his dishes. First in line is Frankie.
We used to eat frankie in hyderabad at eatstreet. Its more of a snack .....street food which is very filling.
It turned out very good, My bro-inlaw suggested that I can now shift this dish in regular menu :) , he must like it a lot.

It is pretty much similar to chefs recipe with a few differences...


For dough:

Maida - 3 cups
Wheat flour - 3/4 cup
Salt - 1tsp
oil - 2 tblspn

While making rotis
2 beaten eggs

For gravy:

Chicken - 1 pound
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp (1.1/2 tsp if you eat it spicy)
turmeric (haldi) - 1/4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
onion chopped - 1 big
Coriander powder (dhania) - 1 tsp
Cumin powder (zeera powder) - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
lemon - 1
oil - 3 tblspn
Tomatoes - 2
Bell peppers - 1 chopped
Coriander leaves - handful


Prepare the dough by mixing maida,wheat flour,salt, oil and water. The should be the same consistency as used to roll out rotis.Let it sit for 10-15 mins.

Take a pan add oil, cumin seeds, ginger and garlic paste and chopped onions and cook till onions are light brown. Now add turmeric, chopped tomatoes,bell pepper chopped, Red chill powder,coriander powder
,cumin powder. Add chicken and a little water. cover and let cook till chicken is well cooked. Now add chaat masala (optional) , lemon juice and coriander leaves,

Now take the dough and make a thin roti and apply oil and spread all over, then sprinkle maida fold it and make it round and press in center and let it rest for 10min,

After 10min role it again into a roti. Now cook on both sides like normal roti in a pan and then apply beaten egg as much as required on one side and flip over. let cook for few seconds.

To assemble the frankie....add the chicken gravy. Garnish with onions and bell peppers. fold and serve hot. Delicious!
