Chicken Frankie

My husband carries his lunch box to office mostly. He prefers roti sabji over rice and dal. I was thinking of trying something quick, new and wholesome in one dish which would keep roti or chapati as base.

So, I thought of going ahead with a Chicken Frankie. Enjoy!


Recipe :


  • 250-300gms boneless chicken thighs, cut into strips or small pieces
  • 4 readymade rotis or chapatis
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 capsicum or green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 capsicum or green pepper, chopped
  • few cabbage leaves, shredded
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp chicken masala
  • salt as per taste
  • 1/4 tsp chat masala
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 4 egg, beaten (each separate)

  2. In a pan, heat oil. Once hot, add the cumin seeds.
  3. When they begin to flutter, saute the onion till soft and golden.
  4. Then add the ginger-garlic paste and saute till it looses the raw flavor.
  5. Next add the tomatoes, bell pepper, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, chicken masala and salt. Mix well and cook for 5 min.
  6. Now add the chicken, mix well and allow to cook covered. The chicken will cook in its own water.
