Veggie Hot Dogs

I was very fascinated to see Americans enjoy street food like we Indians love eating Chats on street corners.Being a Vegetarian i was just curious to know how it tastes so started my hunt for a veggie Hot dog and i found one recipe for it which i liked it and gave it a try.It was superb and i loved it.


4 Hot dog buns

For rolls
2 large sized Potatoes
200gms Cottage cheese /paneer
10-12 Raisins
Fresh coriander leaves a few sprigs
1 medium sized Onion
3-4 Green chillies
2 Red chillies flakes/Paprika
1 tbsp+to deep-fry Oil
1 tsp1 tsp Garam masala powder
1 tsp All purpose Flour/Maida
Salt to taste
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 cup Bread crumbs

To Serve
2 medium sized Onions
4 Green chillies
1 bunch Lettuce
2 tbsps Butter
4 tsps English mustard
4 tbsps Tomato ketchup


First Slit hot dog buns into half without cutting it into two and keep aside. Wash, boil, peel and mash potatoes,grate paneer. Soak raisins in warm water for fifteen to twenty minutes,drain and pat dry. Clean, wash and chop coriander leaves ,chop onion, green chillies. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and sauté onion till translucent.Mix together potatoes, paneer, raisins, red chilli flakes, sautéed onion, green chillies, coriander leaves, garam masala powder and salt. Let cool and divide into four portions.
In another bowl mix refined flour and salt together and keep it aside.Shape potato mixture into cylindrical shaped croquettes. Roll croquettes in seasoned refined flour, dip in milk and roll in bread crumbs. Keep them in the refrigerator for an hour or more .

In a kadai heat sufficient oil and deep-fry croquettes till golden brown and drain onto an absorbent paper. Keep aside.

To serve: Mix Chopped onions,chopped green chillies, shred lettuce. Apply butter on the inside of the buns, apply mustard paste and place one spoonful of onion mixture. Spread tomato ketchup and arrange some shredded lettuce. Place a hot fried croquette, one in each bun and serve immediately.Decorate it with some Yellow Mustard.

[Note: If you dont want to deep fry Croquettes,it can be baked in 400 degree pre-heated oven for 15 mins too.If the criquettes are not refrigerated well it will break while frying/baking.]
