Chat Pati Frankies

Let us wave our magic wands and turn boring chapatis into exciting frankies! And guess what, we are going to use all your favourite veggies and yummy paneer too. With the addition of peppy chaat masala and a bit of handiwork, the veggies turn into a tasty filling, which is tightly rolled up into the chapatis to make Chat Pati Frankies.

Enjoy it fresh, with a dash of tomato ketchup and a glass of Coconut and Orange Drink .

Easy and healthy...although I think it would have been better to use at least grilled or blanched capsicum...can also add boiled sweet corn and spring onions with some soy and chilli sauce to have a Chinese twist
