A great way to use leftover rotis is by turning them into a frankie! While there are numerous versions of the frankie, we like the ones with panner and potato filling. Sharing a fun compilation of each of these recipes is none other than the interesting daughter-in-law and mother-in-law duo of actor Sameera Reddy and Manjri Varde.

“There are so many versions of the frankie! Manjri Varde is obsessed with potato and I love paneer! She is all about marinated chilli and chaat masala and I’m about a spicy red sauce that drenches the roti. So, here is our take on the Mumbai frankie,” shared Reddy.

Take a look at their video below:
