Aloo Corn Frankie, Indian rolls or wraps that serve mainly as a filling, fortifying breakfast (but hey, honestly? They taste great at any other time of day too). We have a vegetarian Aloo Corn Frankie version for you here. They are also very good to take away and can be well prepared for lunch in the office.
To keep your Aloo Corn Frankies or wraps as healthy as possible, it’s important to make them yourself, and not use supermakrt-bought wraps that are full of additives that you won’t find in fresh food. And it’s not that hard, doesn’t take that much longer (of course, it takes longer than opening a box of wraps – but it’s worth it).
Indian food is characterized by intense spices. We would like to use these in our recipe as well. Fresh cilantro is a very prominent feature. This Aloo Corn Frankie recipe can be tried using corn tortillas, whole wheat tortillas or plain tortillas. It has spicy and tangy stuffing in it and also a layer of cheesy spread.
Indian food is versatile. So, there is no such thing as THE Indian breakfast. India is a big country with a variety of traditions and therefore also a variety of “typical breakfast” – depending on the region. A few examples:
- Idli is a traditional South Indian breakfast. Idli are little cakes made of fermented dough based on green beans and rice.
- Puri, a fried bread is perhaps not the healthiest, but certainly a very tasty breakfast. It is served with a wide range of side dishes, depending on the location. It is eaten hot with potato curry or chickpea curry, but can also be served with sweet dishes.
- Rice congee, a rice porridge, with fried vegetables or cucumbers.
- Poha, a rice dish, typical in some Indian states as a breakfast or snack.
