Schezwan Paneer Frankie

( Click image for enlarged view )

Sometimes on weekends we love to eat tibbs schezwan paneer frankie..a nice name for a wrap which can contain paneer,vegetables or chicken pieces with some sliced onions . However it is a little expensive and also use full maida which is unhealthy so I wanted to prepare a healthier option at home and surprise my hubby !! So here we gooooo

Basically the total process needs 3 steps
  1. Preparing the stuffing
  2. Making the wrap roti
  3. Assembly
  • 1 cup paneer cubes (cottage cheese)
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced baby corn
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp green chilli
  • 1 tbsp chopped celery
  • 1 tbsp chopped red chilli
  • 2 tbsp red pepper sauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup homemade vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp corn flour dissolved in 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • salt to taste
Step 1: Schezwan Sauce Preparation

Heat oil in pan/wok in a high flame, saute the garlic,green chilli,red chilli, green chilli, ginger, onions, celery for a minute

Add the vegetable stock and mix well. Add the corn flour mixture, vinegar,red pepper sauce, sugar, salt amd bring to a boil and keep aside

In another pan add 1 tbsp oil and saute the paneer cubes, bell pepper, baby corn for 3-4 minutes on high flame...add this to the above prepared sauce and keep aside.

Step 2 : Preparing the wrap roti

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp cold butter
  • a pinch of salt
Mix both the flour with salt,then add the butter and crumble with ur hands and mix nicely my by adding little by little water and make a soft dough.Let it rest for ten minutes.

After ten min knead the dough into a smooth ball and then divide the dough into 10 parts.Make them into small balls, with a rolling pin roll it into a nice thin circle of 5 - 6 inch diameter and as thin as possible.

Heat the skillet/tawa and it should be hot. Put one roti and after 2 min flip it let it cook for 1 min. Both the sides should cook nicely. Repeat the procedure for the rest of wraps

Step 3 : Assembly of Frankie

  • 10 wrap roti (prepared above)
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1.5 cup above schezwan paneer

Take on wrap and spinkle some onion slices along the length

Take one table spoon of schezwan paneer on top of onion slices

Wrap the paneer in the roti as per the steps below as it will avoid spillage from the bottom

Wrap it and place it on the tawa until roti is warm, then roll a small paper tissue on the bottom and serve warm


1. You can add chicken pieces in place of paneer
2. For egg lovers you can put some beaten egg on the roti, toast it on tawa and then assemble it.
