Why slave over the stove during your cricket party this season? Surely, you want to enjoy the match alongside your friends. So instead of cooking elaborate snacks from scratch, try our quick and easy desi hotdog!
Featured in almost every Hollywood movie scene of an outdoor BBQ party and a pop-cultural food in its own right, the hotdog is an icon. Originating in America, the hotdog had humble beginnings. It was a working-class street food that was cheap and could be bought from roadside carts and vendors. While it has been adopted world-wide, the best hot dogs are still found off of carts in New York City.
What is the original hot dog?
In its original form, a hotdog is a boiled or grilled sausage placed in a bun that has been split down the middle with the only condiments of ketchup and mustard added on top. The sausage used is usually a pork frankfurter or wiener.
As the hotdog grew in popularity and was adopted by cuisines and cultures across the world, toppings have come to include mayonnaise, BBQ sauce, hot sauce, onions, pickled gherkins, jalapeños, sauerkraut, coleslaw, cheese and pretty much anything else that you want. As long as it’s a tubular shaped filling of minced meat in the center of a split bun, it’s a hotdog.
The Indian hot dog!
With our love for food as a nation, of course we’ve made the hotdog our own! From more desi toppings to masala buns, the customisation to suit the Indian palate is endless. One of the most common Indian tweaks to the original is using a chicken sausage. But if you’re looking for a hotdog recipe that is way more interesting… look no further.
