Masala Sandwich

After two long weeks of vacation, our daughter went to school this week. When she is at home, the house will be full of life and chaotic. She wont stop talking, pulling, jumping, running around and making a mess of the house. When she went to school, the house was so silent and it felt like I was all alone in the whole world..Sometimes I feel it is good as I can get my work done but sometimes I get bored.
So, when she went to school on first day, I was not feeling like cooking, but you can't tell that to the stomach right.. My husband teases me saying that it is just a reason for not cooking:-).

I wanted to make something quick as it was already lunch time and saw all the veggies. Added soy for proteins.. My husband liked it a lot as it was a simple, light and healthy lunch..


Onion -1 Tomato – 1
Zuchini – 1
Green pepper – 1 Red Pepper – 1
Turnip - 1 Soy chunks – ½ cup Ginger paste – ½ tsp Garlic Paste – ½ tsp Chili powder – ½ tsp Garam masala powder – ½ tsp Turmeric – ¼ tsp Oil – 1 Tb spoon Fresh Basil Leaves – 1 Tb spoon Salt
  • In a pan, add oil and fry onions till golden brown.
  • Add tomatoes and ginger and garlic paste and fry till they soften.
  • Then add chili powder, garam masala and turmeric powder and fry till oil leaves on top.
  • Add all the veggies and salt and cook on medium heat until all veggies are soft (Do not add water).
  • Take the hot dog bun and stuff the veggies and sprinkle fresh basil on top.
  • Serve with little salad and some hot peppers.

PS: For the Soy, I first soaked them for few minutes till they are soft, then squeezed all the water out of it and added them directly to the veggies and cooked on low flame. You can use the masala as a side dish for chapati or rice. You can use any veggies that you have. If you are a non-veg lover, you can add chicken or fish also to it.

Very neat idea Ashwini. Somehow I have not bought a hot dog bun even once. Since I'm a vegetarian, the bun is also associated with the sausage. Now seeing your idea I'm also getting new ideas to use that bun. I can create a mini sub using that bun for my son. Thanks.
