Frankie is an all-time favourite street food of Mumbai, and is much-loved by Indians across the world. Now, it is common to see Frankie counters on the streets of other Indian cities and towns too!
Stuffed with a chatpata mix of veggies and spices, the Frankie not only pleases the palate but is also quite filling. Here, we have made a healthier, low-salt version of this popular snack, which can be enjoyed occasionally by those with high blood pressure too.
This recipe replaces maida with wheat flour and does away with cheese. The Mixed Vegetable Frankie does not use too much fat for cooking either, and is jam-packed with veggies.
It is important to serve this nutritious snack immediately to enjoy the burst of flavours and the best of textures.
You can also occasionally treat yourself to other dishes like the Cabbage Paneer Koftas in Makhani Gravy and Nourishing Khichdi .
