My memories of eating Frankies go back to my childhood and eating this delight at an eatery called Waikiki(I know strange name). Today Frankie stalls are everywhere a roti is cooked with beaten egg on one side studded with chatpata chaat masala. The filling can be anything these days from the original, to Indi Chinese favorites like Chilly Chicken & Schezwan, Mutton and Veggie options.

My favorite is the old classic and that’s what I’m going to replicate today. I like to dice my Chicken fine as it’s most practical to eat and I love to serve this with Onions and dollops of green chutney. Both of these recipes are included in this page and would encourage you to check out the whole process in my YouTube video.
