Its one of those cold days.. You’re sleeping cozy in your blanket, all warmed up, little one still fast asleep, your eyes blink, fully intending to go back to sleep and your mind pushes you to do only one little thing, look at the clock. Bam!
You know you don’t have a choice.
Being a stay at home mom I very often hear ‘Oh, great! You get to be home all day!’ Yes, I do get to be home all day, everyday. It’s the same routine most days, no sick days or holidays, my boss (read my baby) doesn’t accept any excuses and I would really like to be by myself a little (especially in the washroom) 😛
I’m not saying working women have it easy, I’m saying sahms don’t either! It would help if we weren’t such bitc*es about it.
So, yes, by evening I had a strong craving to have something very very unhealthy and delicious and spicy.. I was leaning towards having a Chicken roll. So now I had to feed and dress my toddler up, get ready, get a ride to this small joint, and eat while entertaining my preschooler, who for sure wouldn’t let me take a seat even. Suddenly the prospect of having that roll wasn’t so appealing anymore..
Luckily for me, we had a pair of hotdog buns in the fridge. Mission junk accomplished.
What you will need
2 hot dog buns
1 large onion
4-5 cloves of garlic
4 tomatos, blanched, peeled and pureed
7-8 chicken salamis
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp ground pepper
4 tbsp grated mozzarella cheese
Butter, to spread as required
Chilly powder, to taste
Salt, to taste
Cut the salami in long strips and deep fry it until crisp.
In a skillet, take some oil and add chopped garlic. Fry for a minute or so and add chopped onions. Once onions are soft add tomato puree and allow to cook on a slow flame until it leaves oil.
You may also use a pack of ready tomato puree instead.
Once the mixture starts leaving oil, add turmeric, chilly powder, ground pepper and mix well. It should have a thick gravy consistency. Allow it to come to a boil. Now your gravy is done.
Slit the hot dog buns midway in the center. Slather the insides with butter and stuff some of the ready gravy. Fill it with some stripes of fried salami and top it with some cheese. Microwave the filled buns for 30 seconds and serve immediately.
These are perfect take aways for older kids and adults alike, each bun cut into two serves as great party food and well, we could have these anytime of the day! 😀
