Paneer frankie... especially for kids

Paneer frankie is usually loaded with a lot of stuff but I make this simple frankie for kids lunch box. This is a quicker version but has enough spice and taste to satisfy those little tummies. If I send this to school then I can be sure that they would be happy to finish it off completely. That is something very important for all moms :) .... happy to see a completely clean lunch at the end of the day

To keep it simple in the morning and also to get the paneer marinated throughly, I prefer to marinate the paneer overnight. A little curd and a few spices tossed together with paneer brings out wonderful flavours. Morning breakfast making is hassle-free on days that I make this for my kids

Serves... 4 kids
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Whole wheat Chapathis - 4
Paneer - 20 pieces 
Thick curd- 2 tbspn
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tspn
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tspn
Chilli powder - 1/4 tspn
Garam Masala - 1/4 tspn
Fennel / Cumin powder - 1/4 tspn
Chaat masala - 1/4 to 1/2 tspn
Onion - 1 big
Oil - 2 tbspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir.... 

    • Spoon in 2 tablespoons of fresh thick curd into a wide bowl
    • Add half a teaspoon of ginger garlic paste
    • Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt, garam masala powder, fennel powder to the bowl

    • Mix it all together to a smooth paste
    • I have used paneer that I cut into 1 1/2 inch length and a little thick
    • Toss the paneer pieces into the curd mixture
    • Use your fingers to gently turn around the paneer pieces so that the spice mixture gets evenly coated on all sides
    • Leave it in the fridge overnight for best flavours but if you running out of time you can just rest it for 15 minutes or so
    • Heat a tablespoon of oil in a shallow nonstick pan
    • Place the marinated paneer pieces in the pan and fry it on both sides till slightly golden. This is just gonna take a few seconds
    • Remove and keep them on a plate
    • Slice onions thinly and toss it in the same pan with a little oil
    • Saute the onions for a few minutes with a little salt and chaat masala

    • Remove it on a plate and keep it aside
    • Take a chapathi and lay it on a plate
    • Arrange a few slices of paneer on it
    • Put a little sauteed onion slices on it as a thin layer
    • Roll the chapathi to form a wrap
    • Serve hot and enjoy

                                                        • Keep the paneer marinated overnight for best flavours
                                                        • Chat masala adds an extra tang to the frankie
                                                        • Dont cook paneer for a long time else they turn hard
