SINGAPORE (Bernama) -- They come in red or even brown hues, made from meat, provide 210 kilocalorie per serving, preferably served hot and they recently raised eyebrows in Malaysia.

Do you know what are they? The thing that I'm talking about goes by many names - frankfurters, franks, wieners, weenies, tube steak, sausage but almost everyone knows them as the delicious 'hotdog'.

The hotdog has been in Malaysia for decades now and sold by the fast food outlets and vendors across the country while the raw hotdogs - frankfurters or sausages - are easily available at the convenience stores or supermarkets.
