curry dog

The other day on Twitter, I was chatting with one of my friends and we got on the topic of hot dogs with curried cabbage.

It seems that curried cabbage on hot dogs is a Kansai (Western Japan) thing.

Since I had that on my mind when I went to the market, I picked up some weiners and cabbage and made my own curried cabbage.

With a handful of cabbage, slice it thinly.

Then in a non-stick pan, throw in your cabbage and let it wilt.

While it is wilting, add a teaspoon or so of curry powder.

When the cabbage is cooked to your liking, take it off the heat. I like it a little "crunchy" so I didn't cook it too long.

To assemble the dog...I used baguette, but you can use a hot dog bun.

Instead of slicing the bun on the side, I sliced it from top to bottom.

Open up the bun and add a layer of curried cabbage, then add your hot dog.

On the sides, slip in your cheese and top with more cabbage.

Toast for about 5 minutes.

Add some chips to your plate and you're ready for lunch.

So easy and delicious.

These are really good and the Mrs makes them all the time at home. It is a great way to spice up a simple hot dog. I also used to love the Curry Nan Dogs at Mos Burger - so good :)

I don't think I tried the curry naan dogs @ mos, J-A, but do like the naan tacos there.

Take care.
