Aloo Frankie Recipe using Palak Paratha

Who doesn’t like a frankie? Easy to make and yummy to eat if you get the tangy taste of stuffing just right. Devansh loves frankies. We both like Tibb’s chicken frankies. At home, I make egg frankie for him and me. While my vegetarian husband makes them using palak paratha as a wrap with potato stuffing.

Kalpesh loves experimenting with food and this one experiment of his is a big hit with all of us.

At home we make palak parathas once a week and more often than not Kalpesh ends up making these frankies for Devansh using those parathas. The taste of spinach in paratha compliments the potato stuffing really well.

I still give Devansh simple, easy-to-eat food in tiffin but one year down the line I can give these frankies in his tiffin without him messing up his hands for sure. Hope you like this healthy frankie recipe made using palak paratha as a wrap.

  • 3 medium-sized boiled potatoes
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 curry leaves
  • 1 small green chili optional
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • 1/5 th tsp mustard seeds rai
  • 1/3 rd tsp cumin seeds jeera
  • Pinch of asafoetida hing
  • Pinch of turmeric powder haldi
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 cheese cube
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Add chaat masala and a small pinch of salt in lemon juice, and keep this juice aside.
  • Mash boiled potatoes while they are hot to ensure that the mixture remains smooth and doesn't become sticky.
  • Heat oil in a pan, and then add mustard and cumin seeds.
  • When they splutter, add hing, curry leaves, and chopped chili. (Adding chili is optional. You may want to avoid chili for younger kids.)
  • Add mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, and salt.
  • Mix well to ensure you get a stuffing similar to that of batata wada.
  • Reheat a palak paratha on a flat pan from both sides.
  • Place the potato stuffing in the center of a paratha and spread it in a line from one end to the other.
  • Add thinly sliced onion on top of the stuffing.
  • Use a spoon to pour the masala lemon juice in one line on the stuffing.
  • Grate some cheese on top.
  • Roll the frankie and serve it in a plate.

Notes

To make palak parathas, add blanched and chopped/puréed spinach to wheat flour. Add salt and oil, and knead a dough similar to that of chapatis. You can also add some grated ginger and sesame seeds in the dough optionally. Roll out the dough and cook similar to chapati to make palak paratha.
You can use rotis or chapatis instead of palak parathas.
