Vegetarian Hot dogs

Vegetarian Hot dogs
A hot dog is usually prepared from meat and garnished with mustard ketchup, capsicum, cheese and/or onions. It is served similarly as sandwich. My kid saw hot dogs in some advertisement and was keep on asking for hot dogs. I  prepared vegetarian version of hot dog from scratch. I have used vegetables -carrots, potatoes and paneer. It came out very well. My kid loved it a lot. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing vegetarian hot dogs recipe.
