I have made this recipe and believe me it comes out very good. You will remember the mumbai frankie’s.
1.Make sure the frankie dough is hard so that the roti’s come out good. The dough will automatically become soft after an hour because it has maida in it.
2.Don’t cook the rotis too much but only enough till brown spots appear on roti.
3.Instead of sprinkling amchur or chaat masala on the stuffing, we can also use chilli vinegar water.
4.If we want to make roti’s in advance, then half cook the roti’s first and at the time of serving cook it fully.
5.We can also add other vegetables in the stuffing such as grated carrots, finely chopped green beans, grated beetroot and any other vegetables according to your choice.
6.For those who don’t eat potatoes, they can use boiled raw bananas in place of potatoes.
