Paneer Frankie

This cool new food site (actually, Facebook page) called Your Food Lab had this recipe, which inspired this frankie...super yum...reminded me of home...

Sadly can't figure out how to link to the FB post (I used to know how to do it..but just can't remember now)...

Frankie cover: Whole wheat flour  (~ 3/4 cup) + AP flour (~3/4 cup) + salt + baking powder (about 1/2 tsp) +water. Whisk. I actually had roti atta from before, which I whisked into water, and added AP flour to prepare maida. The fact that the dough had been in the fridge for a couple of days might have made it extra tasty (mild fermentation). Make large, medium thick dosas on a hot tava with a bit of oil and lightly brown on both sides. Set aside the whole stack.

 Paneer: cube into smallish pieces. Heat some oil, add 1 tsp each ginger and garlic paste + 1 tbsp schezuan   sauce + 1 tbsp tandoor paste (I had something in the fridge..I guess some basic spices and garma masala can be used to substitute it) + 2-3 tbsp hot and sour tomato chilli sauce (it's different!) + 2-3 tbsp of regular ketchup + 1 tsp of chaat masala. Saute for a bit, then add paneer pieces and saute.

Veggies: Heat some oil, add Julianned carrots + sliced onions + sliced peppers + finely shredded cabbage. Saute for a bit quickly + salt.

Onions: very thinly sliced onions + salt + plain vinegar. Set aside.

Other toppings: shredded cheddar cheese, spring onion, cilantro, lime

Assembling: On one frankie cover, sprinkle cheese, spring onion, mix veggies evenly (in that order). Add one or two rows of paneer pieces in the middle. Add spring onion, cilantro, squeeze a bit of lime, and then fold into a burrito. Heat on the tava for a little bit (just to heat the cover, melt the cheese and get the frankie slightly crispy). Slice in the middle on a bias and serve hot.
