  • Ingredients- (makes 4 hot dogs)
  • For the veggie sausage:
  • Kidney Beans - 1 cup (I put 4 palm-fuls)
  • Potato - 2 medium sized
  • Tofu - 50-80 grams (optional) [[Use cottage cheese as alternative]]
  • Paprika - 3 teaspoons
  • Pepper Powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Salt - as per taste - 1 teaspoon
  • Cilantro chopped - 2 tablespoons (optional)
  • Others:
  • Hot Dog Buns
  • Tomato Ketchup
  • Mustard Sauce (optional)
  • Tomato Slices
  • Onion Slices
  • Cabbage / Lettuce leaves


    1. Soak the Kidney beans in water overnight. (or for around 6 hours). Boil the Kidney beans (with a little bit of salt) to make them soft & mash-able! Completely filter the water from the kidney beans. Use a clean cloth or towel to remove some excess water from the kidney beans.
    2. Boil, peel & mash the potatoes. (& also mash the tofu if you are using it). In a large mixing bowl, mash the kidney beans with your hands. Don’t use a blender. We just need to mash the beans roughly. Add the mashed potatoes & mashed tofu to it & mix well
    3. Add the chopped cilantro, green chilies, slat, paprika & bread crumbs & mix well. Divide the mixture to 4 large balls.
    4. Take a part of the mixture on a flat surface. Imagine how a sausage looks like. Slowly, start rolling the dough evenly as if it were a rolling pin
    5. Wither deep fry the sausages or for a healthier version, add a teaspoon of oil to a pan & shallow fry OR grill on both sides for 4-5 minutes each
    6. Cut the bun into 2 halves. Apply butter (optional) and tomato sauce & mustard sauce generously on the lower half.
    7. Place slices of tomato, lettuce & cheese. And then sausage we prepared above on the lower half.
    8. Apply sauce on the other half of the bun. Close the lower half with the other half of the bun.
