How to Make Paneer Frankie

Fusion cooking is all about combining elements from different cuisines to make dishes with bold new flavours.

Paneer Frankie is a delicious example of this ideal. It incorporates flavours from the popular Indian street food Frankie with influence from the traditional Indian cuisine paneer tikka.

The resulting roti or tortilla-wrapped filling of smoky, spicy paneer makes for a great on-the-go supper.

Preparation and Ingredients for Paneer Frankie

Let’s start with the basics to make that Paneer Frankie again:

  1. The filling’s creamy texture and mild flavour are thanks in large part to the key ingredient, paneer, an Indian cheese.
  2. Marinade and Seasonings: Cumin, coriander, paprika, and garam masala, among other spices, create a complex and comforting flavour profile for the paneer. The paneer is infused with delicious flavours with a marinade of yogurt, ginger, garlic, and lemon juice.
  3. A Tortilla or a Roti: The filling is held together by a thin, tender flatbread.
  4. Seasonings and Veggies: Crunchy and flavorful toppings include freshly cut onions, bell peppers, lettuce, and a selection of chutneys or sauces.

Let’s go into the specifics of how this works:

  1. Put the paneer cubes in a bowl and mix together the yogurt, ginger, garlic, lemon juice, and spices. Paneer needs at least 30 minutes to fully absorb the flavours.
  2. Make the rotis or tortillas while the paneer marinated. Either create them yourself or buy them premade from the supermarket.
  3. Marinated paneer should be cooked over high heat in a skillet or on a grill until it is brown and slightly scorched. This process makes the paneer taste smoked.
  4. To get the onions and peppers soft and caramelised, sauté them separately in a different pan.
  5. The next step is to put together the Paneer Frankie. Arrange a warm roti or tortilla on a dish towel. Add a dollop of your favourite chutney or sauce.
  6. Spread a good amount of grilled paneer cubes on the roti, then top with a layer of sautéed onions and bell peppers. Fresh lettuce or other vegetables can be used for more vibrancy and variety.
  7. Wrap the roti securely by rolling it up and tucking in the edges. You should do it again with the rest of the Frankie rolls.
