Ingredients
  • French fries from 4 potatoes or 3 cups frozen cooked as per package directions ( you can make fresh at home or use frozen)(If you are making at home, just wash & peel potatoes and cut them in medium size wedges. Wipe them dry with a paper towel and fry until golden brown.)
  • Sal to taste
  • 1-2 tsp red chili powder or depending on how spicy you want
  • 3-4 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 jalapeno chopped fine
  • 4-5 tbsp ketchup
  • 7-8 tbsp tomato puree (you can use fresh or canned) (for fresh just take few tomatoes and puree them in high speed blender)
  • ½ bell pepper finely chopped (if bell pepper is small, do full)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped green onions
  • Butter for buttering hot dog buns
  • 8-10 Hot dog buns
  • 3-4 cups shredded cheese (use any good quality cheese, I liked using cheddar here)
Instructions
  1. Using frozen french fries makes these really easy & quick to assemble. These are great for a fun summer party or evening snack or even dinner with a salad!
  2. If you are making your own fries, you can make them ahead of time and just leave the assembling part for the last moment.
  3. If using frozen fries, cook them as per package directions.
  4. In a bowl mix cooked french fries, salt, red chili powder, garlic paste, half of the jalapenos, ketchup, tomato puree,half of the bell peppers, half of the onions and half of the green onions. Mix everything and taste. Fix seasoning or if you want more sweeter add more ketchup or if you want little more gravy then add little more tomato puree. Make sure the mixture is really nicely seasoned. Keep it aside.
  5. Pre heat oven to 350F.
  6. On a lined baking sheet, lay down hot dog buns. Butter the buns both inside & outside. Add 1-2 tbsp of shredded cheese in the center of the buttered buns. Fill the buns with a good amount of potato filling and cover the tops with cheese.
  7. Pop them in hot oven and bake for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. Top with more green onions, onions, bell peppers and jalapenos and serve!
