I have previously posted a recipe for Frankie/Kathi rolls with mexican filling, where I used refried beans and coleslaw. Today, I am sharing a quicker version to it where there are 2 fillings – one is the Subway-style corn-peas in sour cream/curd and another is a typical bell pepper/capsicum and onion tangy curry. Add a pinch of chat masala and the flavors marry very well. The first bite will surely explode in your mouth. It did in mine πŸ™‚

The corn and peas filling that I made here has been copied from Subway-style corn-peas sub-sandwich. I made it from what I thought it tasted like and looked-like, the actual version might be different but this is how I felt it is πŸ™‚


This is a perfect low-calorie and fibre-rich dinner option and is healthy too. Not much oil is used and there is no paneer or deep fried aloo/potato based stuffing that is made. The corn-peas is a simple filling made in less than 5 minutes and the capsicum curry has very low-calorie ingredients. This is definitely a good option for people trying to cut down calories for dinner and yet need something filling.
