Potatoes are not only handy when we do not have any vegetables in the refrigerator, they are versatile too. One can use them in all the dishes, yes even sweets too, they do make a halwa of it ! Yes, today’s dish is of potato, but not a sweet one.  I will be presenting you with Frankie or  Potato Wrap , as some say it.

I have been making Frankie quite often as everyone likes it at home. It is not only filling but can be packed for the lunch box too. I have tweaked the recipe to my needs and have been following the same.

It’s again time for our blog hop with the theme as “Anything with  Potatoes  “. Thus, there will be an array of dishes for you to have a glance.
