Veggie Hot Dog

It was the time when American food became popular and wherever you go, you are tempted with Pizzas, Burgers etc. We saw joints like Pizza hut competing with other restaurants and coming up with most exciting offers to attract people. Of course with the response they got, they were unable to have the offers running for long.

This becoming so popular, we ended up making these at home, what better way to enjoy, than preparing it ourselves. Of course Indianizing in the way. At one point we used to prepare pizzas, burgers so much, that folks at home started longing for Indian food. But my fascination towards pizzas, burgers is no end.

With pizzas, burgers, there were Veg types available, but items like Hot Dogs were basically prepared with beef or pork, there was no way I can try to make it. So I ended up with what's my fav, Veggie Hot Dog.

Its been long time since I made this last. When I made it recently, it was welcomed well. Esp my daughter liked it a lot, so I guess I can trust to have somebody to have this the next time I make it.

Here you go..

Serves : 4
Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins

Ingredients needed:

For patties:

Potatoes - 2 medium
Peas - 1 cup
Carrot - 2 medium
Maida - 1/2 cup
Chilli pw - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cheese - as required
Coriander Leaves a little
Oil for frying

For coating

Corn flour - 1/2 cup
Bread Crumbs - for coating

For Hot Dog:

Long buns - 8
Cheese - for garnishing
Tomato Sauce as required
Pepper pw as required

Method to prepare:

If you are using dried peas, then soak in water for 6 hrs min and cook to get soft ones. Carrot, potatoes can be boiled along with peas.

Mix corn flour in water to get a dropping consistency. Get bread crumbs ready.

Mix all the ingredients for patties Roll then as long patties and dip in corn flour, then in bread crumbs.

This can be either deep fried or shallow fried. I did a shallow fry as its better tasting.

Heat oil in a pan and place the long patties and add 1 tbsp to fry each patties.

Once all the patties are ready, make a long slit on one side of the bun making sure its still intact.

Apply sauce, grated cheese, then place the patties inside. Sprinkle generous amount of cheese if you like cheese on top of the patties.

Bake it in oven or microwave until the cheese melts. Finally you can sprinkle pepper and sauce over the top before serving.

Your hot and cheesy Veg Hot Dog is ready. Enjoy!

Cutlet meets hot dog.. But thinking abt it why not? I wonder y vegetarianized hot dogs aren't popular.. I have seen tofu dogs in my farmer's market.. Never dared to try 'em though..

Nazer said...

good recipe. Do you have a most recently updated recipe, especially in a healthy way eliminating fatty maida and use flour 2 instead of flour1 (maida)., and get away with greasy food etc.

Just thought of expressing my concerns.

Thanks
