• 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)


  • Hot Dog Buns
  • Tomato Ketchup
  • Mustard Sauce (optional)
  • Tomato Slices
  • Onion Slices
  • Cabbage / Lettuce leaves


  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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. DonâÂÂt use a blender. We just need to mash the beans roughly. Add the mashed potatoes & mashed tofu to it & mix well
  • STEP 3
    Add the chopped cilantro, green chilies, slat, paprika & bread crumbs & mix well. Divide the mixture to 4 large balls.
  • STEP 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
  • STEP 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
  • STEP 6
    Cut the bun into 2 halves. Apply butter (optional) and tomato sauce & mustard sauce generously on the lower half.
  • STEP 7
    Place slices of tomato, lettuce & cheese. And then sausage we prepared above on the lower half.
  • STEP 8
    Apply sauce on the other half of the bun. Close the lower half with the other half of the bun.
  • STEP 9
