veg Frankie recipe | Mumbai street food veg Frankie | veg Frankie step by step | with 30 amazing images.

The Veg Frankie of Mumbai is now so famous that you can find Frankie stalls all over the country – in parks and beaches, on the street and in food courts.

A satiating snack that can be relished even on-the-go, the veg frankie is made by rolling up a tongue-tickling potato mixture inside roti wraps.

veg frankie is one of Mumbai’s most famous roadside foods and its a very appetising experience to watch the Frankie-wala deftly preparing one.

The rotis are made beforehand, but cooked again with butter before making the veg frankie. It’s not just the masaledar potato mixture that makes the Frankie so tasty but also the crunch of onions and the tangy masala water that’s sprinkled on it.

Every single ingredient – from the butter-cooked rotis to the tangy water, the crunchy onions and zesty Frankie masala – contributes to the flavour of the Mumbai style veg Frankie.

I would like to suggest to some tips to make the perfect veg Frankie recipe. 1. Mash the potatoes well with a potato masher or with your hands before you put them in a non stick pan. 2. It is advisable to use lightly cooked rotis with golden brown spots. Overcooked rotis will taste awful. 3. Wrap a tissue paper or aluminium foil around the frankie to seal it and to be able to hold it.

Follow this authentic veg frankie recipe to recreate the magic in your own kitchen. There are many more variants of this versatile and handy snack, including Jain, Schezwan and Cheesy versions.

Try other famous roadside treats like the Vada Pav or Schezuan Chopsuey Dosa.
