A perfect balance of textures and flavours makes the Zucchini and Bell Pepper Sandwich a delight to relish! Mellow zucchini, pungent capsicum, peppy herbs and spiky spices come together to make a mind-boggling filling for mustard-lined hot dog rolls. Cheese cubes are also added to this arrangement as they melt when grilled, lending an irresistible flavour and texture to the sandwich. Serve the Zucchini and Bell Pepper Sandwich immediately after grilling with tangy tomato ketchup.


Hot dog rolls 4 (whole wheat)
Mustard paste 2 Teaspoon (rai/sarson)
Cheese cubes 12
Butter 1 1/2 Tablespoon (For greasing)
For the filling
Diagonally cut zucchini 1 Cup (16 tbs) , unpeeled
Capsicum strips 1 Cup (16 tbs) (red, yellow and green)
Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
Grated garlic 2 Teaspoon (lehsun)
Salt To Taste
Dry red chilli flakes 2 Teaspoon
Dried mixed herbs 1 Teaspoon



For the filling

1. Heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the coloured capsicum, zucchini, garlic and salt and sauté on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes.

2. Add the chilli flakes and mixed herbs and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes. Keep aside to cool slightly. 

3. Divide the filling into 4 equal portions. Keep aside.


4. Cut a hot dog roll horizontally into 2 equal halves.

5. Place both the hot dog roll halves on a clean, dry surface. Apply ¼ tsp of mustard paste on each of the halves.

6. Place 1 portion of the prepared filling on the lower half of the hot dog roll. Arrange 3 cheese cubes evenly over it and sandwich it with the upper half of the hot dog roll with the mustard paste side facing downwards.

7. Brush some butter on top of the hot dog roll and place the prepared sandwich in a greased and pre-heated sandwich griller and grill it for 5 to 7 minutes or till the sandwich turns brown and crisp.

8. Repeat steps 1 to 4 to make 3 more sandwiches. 


9. Serve immediately with tomato ketchup.
