Veggie Dogs

I have always been fascinated by the hot dog. It looks so inviting when I pass by the street cart. Also, the use of minimal condiments (ketchup and mustard) has always made me think that the sausage must be really delicious on its own. So, when I spotted hot dog buns during my grocery run,I thought why not make a vegetarian version of the same. And I must say I am extremely thrilled with the version. Also,the best part of this recipe is that it has plenty of protien too. So, if your dinner just consists of a couple of these veggie dogs, it will still be a complete meal. Read on to discover how I incorporate protein into the veggie dog.

For the veggie dog patties
1 cup soy chunks/granules - soaked in water
2 medium potatoes - boiled and mashed
1 tsp garlic and ginger paste
salt to taste
red chilli powder to taste (you can also use finely minced green chillies)
corn meal to roll the patty 
1 tbsp oil to cook the patty
1-2 tsp cornflour if needed

To serve
4-6 hot dog buns
chopped onions.

Mix together the ingredients for the patties and knead it all together into a dough. You may need to add the cornflour if the dough doesn't come together. Then take enough of this mixture and roll it out into a long patty. Roll it in the corn meal and set aside. Make all the patties. Add oil to the pan and then cook these patties on all sides till well browned.

To serve
Cut or open up the hot dog bun so that its still connected along one of its lengths. Add the patty. Top with mustard, ketchup and onions. Enjoy!

Pour water on the soy chunks/granules to cover them. Leave it aside for 10 mins till the soy is completely  soaked and becomes spongy in texture. Squeeze out the water out of the chunks before mixing with the potatoes. If you do not like the taste of soy chunks, use the granules or shred the chunks into smaller pieces and then you will not notice them when you eat the patty.
