It was the time when American food became popular and wherever you go, you are tempted with Pizzas, Burgers etc. We saw joints like Pizza hut competing with other restaurants and coming up with most exciting offers to attract people. Of course with the response they got, they were unable to have the offers running for long.
This becoming so popular, we ended up making these at home, what better way to enjoy, than preparing it ourselves. Of course Indianizing in the way. At one point we used to prepare pizzas, burgers so much, that folks at home started longing for Indian food. But my fascination towards pizzas, burgers is no end.
With pizzas, burgers, there were Veg types available, but items like Hot Dogs were basically prepared with beef or pork, there was no way I can try to make it. So I ended up with what’s my fav, Veggie Hot Dog.
Its been long time since I made this last. When I made it recently, it was welcomed well. Esp my daughter liked it a lot, so I guess I can trust to have somebody to have this the next time I make it.
Here you go..
