Chicken Frankie Recipe

Mumbai street style Chicken Frankie is one of my favourites days .Chicken Frankie or Paneer Frankie was the only thing we used to treat our friends with .since it's very unhealthy I try to make it with the whole wheat flour..the whole wheat version is already in the blog .But at times I crave for something unhealthy lol..
I don't eat eggs so my Frankie is always without egg but I make it with eggs for my family .
Making Frankie is very easy and economical too not to mention its hygienic too so why not make it at home rather than buying those oily Frankie's .

Usually egg is fried over the roll first and then topped with fillings but since i don't eat eggs i just skip it.
If you wish to add whisk egg with salt and little pepper and pour it on  the Frankie roll when the roll is on tava turn it over so that the egg is cooked then proceed with the filling.
