Hot dog is an extremely popular street food in the USA and is easily recognisable with its typical long bun a meat sausage and sauces on top.

Hotdogs in America started during the early 19th century when a lot of Germans migrated to the USA. When they reached New York, they put out small stalls where they served people with hot sausages.

First they were just boiled sausages sold with the bun, but it used to burn the hands of people and was very inconvenient. Then one day someone someone suggested serving it in a bun to avoid the hand from being burnt. After that they added sauces on top and from there hot dogs started becoming popular.

How Did the Name Hot Dog started?

Some people also say that there is a german species of dogs called dachshund which are small and long in shape that resemble so much like a sausage and when people from Germany migrated to the USA they also got their dachshund dogs with them. This may have lead to the popular name of Hot Dog simply by the visual reference of a hot sausage+a sausage looking dog = Hot Dog.

In the earlier times in northern Germany dog meat was consumed and it was normal there, so when they opened shops in USA some people believed that the sausages had dog meat and hence called them hot dogs.

So it’s not like hotdogs contain dog meat, in fact there are vegetarian and vegan versions too but this popularity has come from its ease of eating which is very similar to a burger, a burger is round, it has a patty or meat, here instead of that in a hot dog there is a sausage.

So this was a little bit of a background about hot dog, I hope you like it.

For Soya Chunk Keema

In a pan add dried soya kheema, water, salt, green chilli and ginger. Bring it to a boil, lower the heat and let it cook till all of the water is absorbed by the soya chunk keema. Turn off the heat and keep aside.


For Filling

In a fresh pan heat oil, drop in butter and once it melts. Add cumin, pathar phool and give a stir. Add garlic, ginger and cook them for 30 secs. Add in onions and cook them for a minute. At this stage add capsicum, green chillies and cook them on high heat for 30 sec. sprinkle turmeric, chilli powder,, coriander powder and garam masala. Stir for few seconds and immediately add freshly made tomato puree. Sprinkle salt, kasoori methi and cook till the masala gets thick.

Now add the cooked soya chunks keema and cook them together for 3-4 mins. The idea is to make this thick but at the same time soya has to be juicy. If required sprinkle some water to keep it juicy and moist. Drop in butter and some chopped coriander. Remove and keep aside.


For Cheese Sauce

Melt butter in a pan, sprinkle flour and cook on low heat for 20seconds. Add crushed garlic clove, chilli powder and give a quick stir. Pour in milk and bring to a boil. Once it boils, simmer for 2 mins to lightly thicken it. Turn off the heat and add cheese slices. Stir them in for a minute. Transfer this sauce into a jar and using a blender blend them. You can do the same in a mixer grinder as well. Pour it out into a bowl and it is ready to serve.


For Assembling

Slit the bun from he centre and fill it with cheese sauce, add a generous amount of soya keema and top it with paneer, onions, tomatoes and chopped coriander.
Serve them hot or warm.
