It has a stuffing that is wrapped with a flatbread. I am going to show you this recipe as one my “on the go” foods.
In a mixing bowl add wheat flour, salt and oil, mix it well. To make soft dough add water as needed and make smooth and soft dough just like roti. For detail recipe you can watch the recipe of how to make roti.
Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes to get set. Meanwhile let’s prepare our stuffing.
To make stuffing:
Heat butter/ oil in a pan, once the oil becomes little hot add finely chopped garlic and sauté it for few seconds on medium high flame till raw smell goes away.
Now add finely chopped onion and sauté till it becomes translucent.
Now add all the veggies and sauté it on high flame till it becomes little crunchy. Do not over cook the veggies and even don’t cook on medium flame as veggies will release water and it will become mushy.
Once the veggies gets slightly cooked add all the spices vinegar, soya sauce, salt, black pepper and mix it well.

Process of making rotis for veg kathi roll/ Frankie:
Uncovered the dough and knead it for few seconds. Divide the dough into 8-10 equal parts. I am going to make medium size veg Frankie but if you want to make it big in size then you can divide the dough into 5-6 equal parts, it all depends upon the size you want to make.
Dust the rolling surface with some dry flour and put one part of the dough and dust it with dry flour and gently roll it evenly to make thin roti. You may use some dry flour while rolling the roti but do not add too much otherwise roti will become hard. To makes frankie always make thin roti, do not make thick roti.
Heat non-stick pan, once the pan becomes hot place one roti on a hot pan and cook it on medium high flame. Wait for 2 minutes or until the bubbles starts appearing on the upper surface of the roti. Flip the roti, press it down with spatula and apply some butter or you can use oil and cook from both the sides until golden spots appeared. You can also make roti without applying butter or oil.
Once cooked take out from the pan and repeat the same process for rest of the roti.
