Hot Dog Post.
Which should endlessly entertain my mother and mother-in-law who are both cra-zeeeeeee about hot dogs.
Doesn't this Hot Dogs a la Rose dish look wonderful though below?
Once again, I was only going to take a picture because I am not a big hot dog person.
But then I ate it after I took the pictures.
I think I must be a hot dog person.
Okay, here's what this India-inspired Hot Dog a la Rose dish looked like after just ONE bite.
Except I didn't have any garam marsala spice!
And my grocery store doesn't carry it.
What to do?
What to do?
Well, I put on my thinking cap to aid me in in my
garam marsala spice predicament.
I meant my THINKING cap.
Now THIS one is my thinking cap!
Let me look a little further...just a minute...
So anyway I put my thinking cap on and it occurred to me, maybe my store has one of those McCormick variety spice packs...you know, they're kind of newer and are located in the spice aisle...And guess what...
BINGO again...looky loo!!!
I flipped the package over and sure enough...
Yay Angie, it's your birthday.
Like it's my birthday. Even though it's not really.
Yeah, so anyway, this dish calls for fresh grated ginger so get yer ginger out of the freezer and grate some up.
Put the onions, carrots, ginger and garlic in an oiled pan and begin to saute.
Add the salt and pepper...
And of course add the spices in...the garam marsala, turmeric and paprika.
Continue with the diced tomatoes and the ketchup.
Kills me. :)
Be sure to add water if the mixture looks too dry.
Cover and cook on medium-low for 15 minutes.
Enjoy the aroma, it makes the kitchen smell fabulous.
Take the lid off and look at this!!
Those spices are absolutely fantastic. I kept picking at the hot dogs and eating them. And I don't even like hot dogs much.
Okay, get your pita ready....
Fill up that whole wheat pita with this hot dog goodness.
Never thought I would ever use those words; hot dog goodness.
hot dog dish is.
Each bite is different, several layered flavors.
Even Tim kept picking out some pieces to eat.
Hey everyone, that's all I got!
Stay cool today!
Have a good Tuesday and we'll chat again soon and I swear it won't be about hot dogs :):):)!!
